A/Y Mimarlık

Forty Years Full of Architecture


The story of the establishment of A/Y MİMARLIK, which has already left behind over forty years of professional background, began in May 1975 in the Taksim square, Istanbul. Two close friends, both graduates of the Faculty of Architecture of Middle East Technical University, met by chance in the Taksim Square. Upon the decision taken on that very same day, they started a wonderful professional journey that would last till this day.  Abbas Hacıomeroglu – Yalcın Turkdogan Architectural Office was established in February 1976 in a moderate attic in Beyoğlu that viewed the Bosporus from its small balcony overlooking to the court of Galatasaray High School.

The office was to be renamed A/Y MİMARLIK Design, Building and Trade Ltd. Co. in 1989. The aim was to work in the field of architectural design and projects. For years they signed many project of varying scales and themes such as private houses, housing, holiday villages, industrial buildings, commercial and business buildings. Beginning from 1980’s, interior design and field application works mainly institutional projects  such as banks, administration offices, shops were added to A/Y MİMARLIK portfolio. Giving  priority to highest quality and perfection in their works became a company tradition. In the Spring of 2001,  A/Y MİMARLIK moved the 25 year old Taksim office to their new building in Beylerbeyi, İstanbul.

In its new office, A/Y MİMARLIK  continues its professional journey in a creative and harmonious cooperation with its clients and professionals of the architectural world.
