I love spatial design because it affords the possibility to work with multiple disciplines and craftsmen and create spaces for every need, mood and time.
Several of the properties that I designed and built featured in national and international magazines which is great, but it's best when I hear of how the places that I dreamt up are appreciated on a daily basis. (See below for some reviews)
It is a challenge to bring together all the elements and constraints; views, terrain, the local vernacular (all of which humble and inspired me) together with the need and desire for comfortable, modern and unique homes. I try to create something more than simply an ergonomic abode that frames a view, I design to lift the spirit of the user/beholder.
I have immense gratitude to all my previous and future clients for providing me with the chance to design and build such places and I'm proud that clients and subsequent owners continue to enjoy them.
I refer to my design work specifically as 'spatial" rather than 'architectural', 'landscape' or 'interior' as the work I do encompasses all of these.
Things said about my Spatial Design...
*The hotel (Deniz Feneri Kas) and many of the villas (which are used for holiday rental) have excellent reviews, here are some of the comments made by guests who stayed in Lacivert Villa owned by Farul Sinangil. (HomeAway.com)
"The architectural design is brilliant, elegant in a timeless way"
"We travel around the world with my family and have to say this was the most amazing villa we have ever been"
"The lay-out of the villa is very carefully thought-out, the spaces flow easily and yet all the bedrooms feel private"
"This house pulls off the trick of being both visually impressive and completely homely at the same time".
