INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE PROJECT III
year: 2014-2015 spring semester
location: İMÇ, Istanbul
The 'Artist in Residence' program allows artists to meet both accommodation and studio needs within a certain period of time; at the same time, it is a project that aims to provide space for exhibitions. Within the İMÇ Bazaar, the selected two-storey area has been integrated and transformed into an atmosphere that will be shaped in line with the needs of the coming artists. Thus, creating different levels with using the wooden material and the steel structure, a relationship have been established between privacy and publicity.To strengthen this relationship in the space, the modules are positioned as if they are floating, and the circulation is dissolved at the back.
The top jeans are designed as the rooms of the artists and are completely opaque; medium level, living space and kitchen. Since the kitchen area is semi-public, the spaces between the wooden materials are left open and semi-opaque. At the bottom, there is a 'black box' cut from the whole place, this module is used as a mix-edit studio. The toilet, storage, working and shooting area is designed to be public at the lowest level. There is a modular system in the garden for exhibiting works, and at the same time there are barcovisions which play works non-stop at the market facing the bazaar.
