That was the initial conversation between the house owner and A49HD 5 years ago.

Located in the area along West Lake, the building serves a variety of uses. Our task is to design and complete the architecture & facade for the building, and design a coffee shop for 2 podium floors (the remaining floors above are completed for space leasing).
We believe that architecture should, first and foremost, affect human behavior. For this to work, besides the ability to create schemes and plans, the architect needs to have good observation skills, the capability to think critically, and the ability to project them- selves as the user to understand how one would behave and react to each space.
FROM ONE PUBLIC SERVICE TO ANOTHER – The transformation of Hasanpaşa Gasworks into a public park and museum complex. The former Hasanpaşa Gasworks is an industrial complex made up of 22 production machines, storage units and service buildings, and is situated on some thirty-thousand square meter site in Kadıköy on the Anatolian side of Istanbul. Following the closure of the plant in 1993, the site was deserted and left in a derelict state. Hasanpaşa Gasworks is one of the most important industrial heritage sites in Istanbul. The founding of the plant dates back to the late-19th century, when Kadıköy was a small district and not nearly organized enough to require such an extensive public service with high development and operation costs.
