BLOG / Divan Project in Kurucesme Construction Site Photos

 

The Divan Kurucesme project designed by GAD is nearing completion. This event and conference space built on the Bosphorus in Kurucesme for the Divan Hotels group employs an innovative steel and glass canopy embedded within the stone and brick walls and terraces of the historical site. 

This innovative new concrete infrastructure supports the steel architecture rising from the remains of the historical yali buildings dating from the early 19th century. This hybrid restoration project continues GAD's design ethos of conceptualising context in the Bosphorus area previously seen in the practises Esma Sultan Mansion project dating from the 2000s.
