Autoban Architects area an internationally renowned, Istanbul based multidisciplinary design studio Autoban was funded in 2003 by Seyhan Ozdemir and Sefer Çağlar, and later joined by Efe Aydar. Now employing 40 staff, Autoban works across architecture and interiors, product and experimental design, forging a reputation for thoughtfulness, experimentation, and craftsmanship. Approaching each project initially as storytellers, their work seeks to understand the character and context of each project.
Each element is informed by a uniquely space-centric approach, blending wit with sophistication, and minimal forms with rich materials.
With a portfolio that includes transportation, commercial, retail, and office developments, Autoban’s work is typified by familiar forms and materials repurposed in vital, contemporary ways.
Their work has redefined Istanbul’s cityscape, including numerous hospitality, retail, residential and public realm developments, and is now also found in London, Madrid, Hong Kong, Moscow, and China, as well as Azerbaijan. Autoban’s signature furniture and lighting range are sold at 60+ points around the world.
