As architecture needs to be more active about urban aspects, planning and design abilities have to interact and interplay. iki design group employs an holistic approach, not only bringing together architectural and planning capacities, but also supports them with engineering competence along with management skills. As the scopes get complex and the scales become large, there has to be a system that would enable the design process to run more flexible and more rigorous.  As providing a backward and forward integration of different scales during the design development is central, a master plan is practical and helpful to achieve coherency and comprehensiveness.  Today, master plan itself does not only introduce physical design objectives of the project. It acts as a complementary strategic device that oversees overall managerial and administrative concerns, too. Master plan has the potential to include all parties and stakeholder to the design process and helps them to participate effectively and efficiently. To secure an integrated planning and design process to succeed a better architecture, a master plan is increasingly getting essential as it is functional, practical and dynamic. Today‚Äôs almost all commission has great deal of urban aspects as contemporary architecture is supposed to find solutions to sustainable urbanization problem in world wide. Having direct influence on reorganization of urban space, design approaches need to merge with planning objectives. iki design group employs a process design  that all level of scales and details meet under an umbrella of master plan where generalist and specialist  contributions could support each other. It is believed that, a new culture of professionalism in architecture is likely to emerge where design and planning processes converge. This leads architects and planners to think and to find solutions together.

iki design group holds the belief that delivering better buildings and spaces to society has a direct influence on the happiness of people. Architecture is the integral part of everyday life as it constantly seeks new ways and solutions to bring quality to the physical environment where life is experienced and lived. It is now subject to a significant transformation. Scales are getting large, scopes are becoming complex. To meet the challenges of contemporary architecture, that are sustainable development, global warming as wells as vulnerability to the disasters, architecture needs to be performed within a more interdisciplinary working environment. Design process has to be driven with most respect to both environmental concerns and urban aspects. iki design group follows a simple understanding: combined knowledge enriches architectural design. Not just because of increasing difficulties and complexity of contemporary architectural challenges, but because of radically changed social system. Today, society is increasingly urbanized, inextricably interlinked and mobilized. To put forward a new interpretation to the interrelationship between human, nature and cities within highly dynamic, mobilized and urbanized society, architecture needs to reach and to embrace diverse capacities. Planning and engineering experts, landscape designers, social scientists along with project management and contractual management specialists have to be the supplementary part of design groups as in-houses disciplines. An interdisciplinary working environment where diverse abilities can complete each other is crucial to be able to face the increasing rigidity of the challenges ahead of architecture. iki design group is committed to deliver a comprehensive design framework in which abstraction power and conceptualization ability of design itself are overriding medium.

Space is the extension of self. Our lives are shaped and re-shaped by spaces. Architecture is the art to arrange and to regulate the space. It is directly related to individual selves and collective life of communities. Space is total, not divided and not separated.  Since contemporary society becomes more urbanized, outdoor facilities and public spaces have to be promoted to enhance the community life. But, interiors are expected be better elaborated to bring quality and comfort   to the individual privacy. No matter the scope, scale and the complexity of any project, architecture has to embrace the design process as a whole. Rather than narrowing itself to only space configuration, it should develop a way of life combining the indoor and outdoor facilities. iki design group puts a particular emphasis on interior from the start-up. Each project opens itself from the interior and reaches to exterior. This provides integrity of space. Activities take place within a continuous and pleasant spatial order where interiors and exterior life complement each other. iki design group employs a simplistic yet comfortable design vocabulary for the interiors that celebrates the human soul and highlights the sensuous experiments with little, but impressive touches. Eschewing from overdesign and flamboyant results, interior solutions aims to reflect the individual identities of the occupants while offering a degree of elasticity so that new preferences in time could easily be added to the space. Such elasticity is also significant for the design itself to maintain itself and to be long lasting. iki design group follows the idea that architecture dignifies the human soul and design is a social service where individuals could find their particular preferences as well. This point of view encourages the integrity of interiors and exteriors where a certain quality of design has maintain in public and common spaces.
