Challenge

Renovating a building by keeping its original value (restoration) and reinforcing it against earthquake risks requires a high degree of professionalism.

Renovation and Restoration - Providing a new identity which complies with modern living standards
Old buildings lack of functionality and basic living comfort, because of age, lack of maintenance, inadequate construction materials, timevvorn infrastructure, and repartition into small spaces. While old elements are kept and put into value, new space with modern living technologies is created.

Reinforcement - earthquake resistant building measures
Turkey is an earthquake prone country. Most buildings constructed before 1985 do not comply with anti-seismic construction norms. By improving the structural design of the building according to the latest anti-seismic construction norms, the structural and non-structural elements of the building are strengthened and protected against the cause of an earthquake.

Interior design - minimalist and industrial design in an old frame

İn a holistic approach of new space distribution and adaptation to new living standards. Galata Yapı Itd. offers own designed and custom-tailored solutions. İn the simplicity and roughness of materials used lies its uniqueness to contrast with the past of the building.
