  4. 4. I was born in Kastamonu, Turkey. Although I had always wanted to be a designer, my family culture said it could only be a hobby and I should have a real career first. I finished Biology and earned my master and doctorate degrees in Human Anatomy. I worked in medical schools as a faculty member and loved teaching, but I never ceased thinking about design. In my fifteen years of teaching and working in Anatomy, I drew illustrations for medical books and periodicals. In the meantime, I kept designing my home, my close friends’ and relatives’ homes, and offices where I have worked. It was a hobby as my family thought, but definitely not enough. Although I wish I could’ve started my design career earlier, I am so glad I finally went for my dream career and took Interior Design courses. I know that this is not only my dream, but the best thing I could do with my heart and soul. I know this is what I should do and will with an endless learning and creativity. This is what I love.Back to Contents Page Biography

  15. 15. DESIGN CONCEPT The Thornton family bought a newly constructed house in Chicago and they need to cooperate with a designer to enhance the existing architectural features in the foyer, living room, home-office, and home theater spaces. The Thornton House will be nesting to Mr. and Mrs. Thornton, their daughter, Alice, and Mrs. Thornton’s father, Mr. Craig. The family wants a formal look in their interiors that is not too feminine. Their existing furniture is Victorian style and they like to see the era all over the space. Our design team will use the design elements of Victorian era such as the crown medallions and crown moldings on ceilings, sash large panels of windows, door frames with the rosettes, floral patterns for the upholstery, and Victorian floor tiles. We don’t want the family to get overwhelmed with too much floral patterns, colors, crown moldings, and feminine elements around. They want an uncluttered, formal look in their house. So we aim to balance the used historical features with the use of plain velvets; painted walls instead of patterned wall papers and avoid using the patterned rugs on the floors.cONCEPT Back to Title Page Advanced Residential Design Studio

  29. 29. DESIGN STATEMENT (XENO ADDITIONAL BUILDING) Xeno is a consulting firm for traditional clothing stores. The parent company is in the United States and their main mission was to have an addition to their larger firm in Avignon, France. The key to the project was in constructing the additions to this office space with the same design principles as previously addressed; a functional, healthy, sustainable, and aesthetically appealing office environment that meets with the universal design standards. The XENO has needed to add two main parts to the existing building as the public areas (Reception, Break Room, Source Room, and Restrooms) and the work spaces (Offices and Conference Room). The four executive offices were extended from the north façade of the building while the library and the conference room were located at the south façade. This way, the reception was relocated to the space between two secretary offices at the central north part of the space, welcoming visitors from the main entrance at the north side. The environment was the most important effect on the company and its employees, helping to revitalize the corporate cultures, hence, the new additions also have been designed with highest interior air quality as well as the highest possible level of daylight and beautiful view of Avignon. The water use has been reduced by using the ultra-low-flow toilets and faucets. All of the materials including the systems furniture have been selected as “sustainable”. The colors have been selected from the light tones to reflect as much day light as possible while all of the paints and finishes were VOC-free. The reception has been floored with reclaimed oak in its natural color and the majority of rest of the space has been floored by carpet in warm earth colors. All of the additional ceilings and walls have been in matte crème color. The furniture as well have been in warm natural colors like earth tones and crème that created a nice match with beautiful view of Avignon and various tones of brown and green, all around. Like all other design elements, lighting has been utilized based on the sustainable design principles. The space has been allocated to get as much daylight as possible through the abundant windows and the skylights while the fluorescent light fixtures and fluorescent down lights have been used for the ambient lighting. All of the design elements have been contemporary in style as this “eco-friendly” building has been designed as a futuristic model not only in regards to the sustainability, but also in aesthetic features and accessibility.cONCEPT Back to Title Page Construction Documents
