Ayşegül Balkan Mimarlık provides design, design management and project management services in areas of architecture, interior design and product design. From the beginning, the practice has been designing projects that vary in function and scale such as residential, office blocks, healthcare, hospitality and industrial buildings and providing services at every level required during the construction process.

For every project, we offer bespoke solutions to create functional, visually and spatially impressive and innovative spaces. Ayşegül Balkan Mimarlık’s main principle is for each project to be meticulously evaluated based on its own dynamics and needs, to provide design solutions with all details carefully considered and within budget and schedule by working closely with other disciplines.
