Suyabatmaz Demirel Mimarlik (Suyabatmaz Demirel Architects)
Istanbul based architecture office Suyabatmaz Demirel was first founded by architect Arif Suyabatmaz in 1995 when he returned from Vienna to Istanbul. After working together with different architects in Vienna, Suyabatmaz established his own practice in Istanbul while teaching in Yildiz Technical University as a studio instructor. He was also one of the founders of Bilgi University Graduate Program in Architectural Design program.
In 2008, Hakan Demirel, a graduate of Yildiz Technical University School of Architecture, returned to Istanbul after finishing his studies in New York and formed a partnership together with Arif Suyabatmaz and the office name hence changed to Suyabatmaz Demirel.
