NoXX Apartment is located in a narrow dead end in Cihangir. Due to the location of the Project and the short timing for construction, conventional construction techniques seem unattainable, therefore a steel structure apartment building is designed with an industrial sensibility and as a homage to the rare standing structures from early century typical of the area.
The underground levels of the building are reinforced concrete while the upper levels are established as steel structure. Composite structure is left visible on purpose, without using plaster, paint or any cladding material in the inside and the outside.

The apartment was designed for a young family with a small child.
The original design of the apartment had a number of serious imperfections. The apartment had a lot of dark rooms and unused spaces. While creating the interior architecture these defects have been possibly removed. As a result the dark hall area became smaller, lost spaces have been reduced.

The project is the design of a 1,280 sq.ft. condo, located on the ground floor of a triplex in Montreal. The mandate was to divide each living area in order to maximize while maintaining the architectural integrity of the existing location, each room with natural light. The concept was to highlight the raw materials, discovered during the demolition (brick wall, wall hemlock and steel structure), in order to communicate their material, their relief and color environment.

The building, from the early 60’s, includes 6 floors, having one apartment on each floor.

Located in Fukuoka City Vice city center, this Building is apartments for rent for single people.
Currently, there is no personality in architecture itself rental apartments, it is often thought to be a uniform design.
As opposed to design the architecture design uniform so far, I have the concept that you plan to have a personality in architecture itself, combines livability and design, the “architecture the sole.
