EMPTY HANGARS TO BE CONVERTED INTO LIVING SPACES

Students from Yaşar University’s Department of Interior Architecture and Environmental Design redesigned the empty hangars near Tepecik Training and Research Hospital’s additional service building in Bornova. The students’ project is intended to turn the hangars into useful living spaces for patients’ relatives, as well as for the disadvantaged including earthquake victims, refugees and students.

    “In this project, we preferred to work on a location with a high rate of public use such as hospitals, schools, and universities. The students decided to implement their projects on the hangars near Tepecik Training and Research Hospital’s additional service building in Bornova. The project is intended to design a living space with both accommodation units and recreational units, which cover a total area of nearly one-thousand-five-hundred meter square. The end users of this project will be the disadvantaged populations including relatives of patients, earthquake victims and refugees.  Moreover, the same design project has been developed for Erasmus students and educators,” said Assoc. Prof. Gülnur Ballice, the relevant course’s coordinator.

        Advised by Assoc. Prof. Gülnur Ballice and instructed by Asst. Prof. Çağrı Özköse Bıyık, the project was also executed by academics Sevda Balcıoğlu, Rena Ballar, Burcu Özen Kundak, Meltem Eranıl Demirli, Dilara Gür, Serkan Ergün, Hande Uğur Balçu, as well as by Research Assistant Selin Karagözler while Asst. Prof. Ayselin Yıldız advised the project on issues regarding its jury.
