superspace is an award-winning architecture practice based in istanbul that designs distinctive contemporary spaces and places that shape the future. we are a research-driven, and enthusiastic group that believes in the power of design, art, and play to enrich the experience of our lives.
we are involved in different cultures, exploring the human condition, in the context of potentials, probabilities and possibilities of distinct living styles. we care for and create empathy for current and future users, as spaces mutually reshape our behaviors, habits, and emotions, which are further oriented with nature and technology to provide healthy and sustainable social interactions.
we think in longer time frames especially on ecological and environmental issues. we analyze the implications of our every move since the construction sector is one of the most contributing to carbon emissions and exhausting finite sources of the earth. we endeavor for resilient, sustainable, and quality cities, buildings, and landscapes, probing every possibility of the terrain through climate positive actions and enacting on the challenges of urbanization, climate change, and globalization, in the hope to bring some relief to the world and inevitably to our lives. we think in terms of contemporary utopias challenging the problems of living and working in today’s conditions, and envision a future accordingly. we reason within and beyond limits.
we know, architecture is not a magic tool that can solve all of our problems, however, it helps us bring out a brave new world, evolving with social changes and technological developments.

what we offer
superspace offers services for architectural, urban, and landscape design with various sense-making narratives and strategies at play, focusing on the boundaries of the built environment and its ecology. we consider cities as our urban living rooms and nature as our connective healer, balancing our bodies and minds. we also make sure the balance is on the side of nature.
our portfolio includes a wide range of scales, from furniture design to the master plan of a neighborhood. we search for local sustainable materials and embed them into the structure in a way that reflects on the heart of the project and the culture. we recognize engineered wood as one of the most compelling materials to work with. we find it powerful to explore renewable energy technologies and new reuses for waste materials, minimizing the carbon footprint and giving a second chance to earth.
we prioritize functions leading to productivity; innovations and strategies supporting sustainability; languages and forms inducing artistic scenery. we generate compelling stories with soft programming that reproduce events in an immersive way. we ask questions to look for larger shifts and make the change happen and actively construct experiences dwelling on this new tradition.
