Deniz Müzesi, 2005
The site is located at the World's most fascinating spots - the Bosphorus - situated on the European side, the museum faces the Asian. Passing ferries, ships and tanks as well as sea gulls are the visual and acoustic scenery for the outdoor spaces which delicately lead to the main idea to terrace 4 stripe offering a variety of open, covered, and enclosed outdoor spaces. The exhibition is a permanent collection of Ottoman wooden ships not to be displayed too prominently to the sun. In order to protect the precious collection a special facade needed to be considered. The metal facade plays with the hexagonal grid system of Oriental patterns.
