Bakırküre Architects constantly seeks to create spatial solutions for contemporary life in the rapidly changing world scene. Starting with the idea that “good” design is enabled by analytical and multidimensional perception, it evaluates every project with its distinctive data. Predicating upon a functional and rational approach, it provides a synthesis of the whole and the parts of different scales in a common and unique design language. Though mainly operant in working and living spaces, Bakırküre Architects has a wide range of praxis, from urban projects to object design. It aspires to overcome problems by means of aesthetic and creative solutions, using contemporary materials and technology besides building up professional associations in order to respond to complex programs.

Bakırküre Architects believes that qualitative output is possible through intensive dialogue as much as with the continuity of the process. This approach figures as the main tool to tender a high-quality spatial experience to the user. Aiming to reanimate the architecture scene with its energy, Bakırküre Architects offers the potential to make design practice into a multilayered reality from concept design to project management.
