The project is planned as the sales and demonstration office of Asma Bahçeleri Houses, which is a project located on %50 sloping ground and attracting attention by contrasting with its context. Construction of Asma Bahçeleri Houses Sales and Demonstarion Office has been completed in 20 days on a zone obtaining a new identity by transformation of a shanty town.

Aim of the design is to construct a temporary structure, by doing minimum excavation in order not to make permenant changes on the site. For this reason, the structure has been placed tangential to its site. When the building served its purpose, it will be transfered to another place.

Form of the building derives from repetition of 3 similar building masses headed in sea and valley directions. Building facade is composed of glass curtain walls, so that visitors feels themselves as if they are on the valley.
