Co-founded by Müge Tan, Selin Şahin and Dilara Seviç in 2014, SML Architects has completed many high quality design projects with scales ranging from small to medium to large. In spite of the poorly designed buildings that destroy the texture of a city, by combining function and the proper form, SML Architects aims analyze and solve problems to execute the most suitable design solution. As SML Architects, we help to provide a new identity to buildings and cities that lost theirs to both provide comfort to end users and offer products that simplify their lives. It's our priority to include aesthetics and current technologies to our problem solving principles throughout architecture.
As SML Architects, we take in architecture and interior design as a whole, and believe they're inseparable. In buildings designed from A to Z, we proceed by planning the shadow of the light that will penetrate through the window designed that will cast on the interior space. The design process continues until the last piece of stone is placed. In our projects that we handle with extreme care to respect the environment, history and social responsibilities, we strive to create new living spaces and identities that integrate with nature and the texture of the city, in good relations with people, and don't contradict their function.
