2018, Istanbul – Located on Rumeli Hisarüstü, in front of Boğaziçi University, this project expand the terrace of an existing cafe in a more functional way for both the customer and the cafe staff by creating a collapsible terrace. In order to allow more air to enter the terrace section in the summer months and to protect it from cold and rain in the winter months, the roof surfaces of the terrace section are solved with a special design and manufacturing joinery thanks to the roller system consisting of aluminum frame and poly-carbonate surface.
These collapsible joinery are carried by iron profiles manufactured on certain axles. The old woods on these profiles were cleaned and applied as coatings and preservatives. The sections between the facade cladding and the space are also used as flower pots. By making the furnishing more functional, the customer capacity has been increased and the goal of more effective use has been achieved.
