Aysin and Rafet Atac House
Ottoman residential architecture, with roots dating back to the fifteenth century, was the point of departure for the design of the Atac summer residence, in a deliberate attempt to restore regional values in contemporary architectural expression. Design studies began in 1983, when the urban plan for the area was yet to be approved. Subsequent negotiations, lasting almost two years clarified the position of the Municipality toward the site and established a detailed client brief. Construction work was administered by Feyza Cansever and supervised by Turgut Cansever.
