“Every architectural design must consist of a feeling and a meaning.”

Founded in 1994 by Öznur Turan EKE, EKE Architecture provides architectural and interior design services for touristic, educational, residential, and commercial projects.

EKE Architecture functions as the creative bridge between the investors and the clients and their living spaces : by providing unique designs crafted for the specifics of every project and perspective of the clients, we aim to shape the art of architecture.

Our main goal is to provide our clients with permanent and effective solutions. The achieve lasting creative solusions, every project at EKE Architecture is subjected to a creative process that runs from the abstract to the practical; every project begins with basic planning and feasibility analysis, while ending with applied architectural designs. This creative process includes the thorough analysis of the project’s physical, social and economic boundaries and the skillful implementation of designs using innovative techologies and modern materials. Throughout each project’s timeline, we aim to fulfill our clients’ expectations by working within the bounds of their budget and ensuring uninterrupted communication between the parties.

EKE Architecture continues to attest its respect for the art of architecture through its projects, each of which push the boundaries of the “conventional” and contain architectural spaces reflecting their users’ unique lifestyles. We believe this to be a statement in and of itself. In our view, architectural spaces are not simply completed projects, they are also living forms of the architect’s and the client’s creative expressions. They are permanent, yet continuously evolving.
