Suyabatmaz Demirel Architects shared with us their design for the Goksu Rope Factory Lofts in . The new owner of this derelict factory wanted to turn his investment into a high-end residential project consisting of various sized lofts. After visiting the site, our major concern became clear.

In order to keep the intangible precipitation of this place, a subtle and humble design strategy was necessary. More images and architects’ description after the break.
