Simonyan and Köçeoğlu Hans which were on the Karaköy dock in 19th century, have been demolished in early 90ies. A concrete building is constructed in place of these two registered buildings in 1994.
The purpose of the project is to recreate the proportion of the original buildings with traditional materials and modern construction methods by keeping the existing structural system.
The existing roof appendix is reinterpreted in a modern way.
The glass material is used as a reflecting surface of the sky and the surface is getting transparent from bottom to top.
