A discreet and reduced architecture with hidden openings based on a compact and pure volume. One of the main intentions of the project consists in the insertion of a residential building with 7 living units in its direct surroundings, marked by detached and solitary buildings in an suburban context. The use of a single light coloured material (fibre-cement panels) for the façade gives the building a monolithic aspect and preserves the quiet appearance. The composition of the different volumes merged to the continuous grid of the façade blurs the clear differentiation of the stacked floors, indeed often characteristic for an multi-storey housing project.

Sprawled across 2,000 square meters over five full floors and a basement/parking floor, the existing six-storey building was reorganized and converted into an office space for the Yemeksepeti project.
The primary objective of the project was to reflect the young, dynamic, unique, and fun working environment of the company on the office spaces. With this idea in mind, the project foresaw well-lit and spacious areas that would arouse a feeling of belonging among the employees.
