Interior Designer, Architect

Click for Resume

I am currently working as a research assistant at MEF University FADA, Department of Interior Design and pursuing my master’s degree at Istanbul Technical University (ITU) in Architectural Design Program. I studied interior design + architecture and graduated from Istanbul Technical University in 2018. I went to Auburn University with an exchange scholarship program in 2015-2016 fall semester. I attended several international workshops (IFAC,POSIAC) and competitions (ARCHed | Jury Special Prize, KOCTAS | Honorable Mention) which I have been awarded many times.

In addition to my academic studies, I have worked on several interior design and architecture projects with Avci Architects. Istanbul Airport Turkish Airlines Domestic and International Lounges (in collaboration with Softroom) and Radisson Blu Niamey Hotel are the two projects recently built in which I worked in the conceptual design and application phases.

In my projects, I use the power of storytelling in my conceptual thinking process. I create narrations/scenarios and use them as a tool and as a way of showing my thoughts about spaces, forms, and prototypes. I believe that narration brings out the potentials of experimental events and performative actions in everyday life.
