Creative Touch to Your Living Areas

Creative Touch to Your Living Areas

I started working during college years and continued my career in design and construction fields after graduation. Even though these experiences I’d had the first thought me a lot about architecture, neither the projects that lasted months nor the construction site processes that lasted years completed me career-wise.

 I started working during college years and continued my career in design and construction fields after graduation. Even though these experiences I’d had the first thought me a lot about architecture, neither the projects that lasted months nor the construction site processes that lasted years completed me career-wise. I got acquainted with retail and food- beverage sector thanks to KRN Architecture I have joined in 2007.  World concept design of Tchibo stores and “Sac Mangal” project in Baku that won the International Design Award are among the projects I’m proud of.

Right at that time, shopping malls were opening one after another and merchandising and restaurant-cafe sectors were very active. Thanks to this dynamism that we were in, I had the opportunity to work with a lot of national and international brands. I got married in this high-tempo and gave birth to two boys. I had the chance to become more disciplined and organised with the boys.

As the construction projects with deadlines, new brands and concepts were motivating me; I got promoted from being an architect to a managing position. Now we were coordination a 30-people team with Sinan Kuran and providing services for the biggest companies in Turkey such as Koç, Ulker, Dogus and Fiba Holding.

I finished my 11th year at KRN Architecture in the meantime and founded Sakura Architecture in 2018.
