A building or interior occupies an unique situation; it is inherently connected to its site (Context+Environment) . When l went to Pasalimani Flour Factory, l remembered the citation. l was impressed and inspired by the beauty of nature and the historical places around the building. Besides l created atmosphere as the environment of the building and l choose the cell because it’s the smallest unit of a living organism of the environment of the building.


The project created for laboratory assistants ( in the field of plant ), university students and professors from plant sciences department and people interested in plants. The goal of the project conduct plant surveys and inform visitors about that researchers.


Nucleus: Nucleus is the center of every mass. Staircase placed in the Nucleus. Before passing to other masses, only Nucleus can be used. The Nucleus has pores and takes on the task of Cell Nucleus.

Endoplasmic Reticulum: The task of the element is to connect Nucleus and other masses. The element carries visitors from Nucleus to other places as Endoplasmic Reticulum.

I Choosed That Materials:

U Profile Glass: The material represent of Cell Membran.
Aluminium: The material is facade lining of the Nucleus. This material is chosen for a strong effect.
Oak Wood: The material chosen to create a warm atmosphere.


I Learned That :

l designed the Pasalimani Flour Factory for the second time . This time l approached more details of historical structure and l learned what we should attention to when we design a historical structure. At the same time, l learned that the building gain new identity and functional with different concept.

Hi, My name is Nisa Kapuagasi. I am from the Istanbul, Turkey. I graduated from Interior Architect and Environmental Design department. l believe,design should be people oriented. Every project has to be amenable to change people's lifes, living conditions and requirements as well as their life style and their enjoyment. For this reason,every project has a different story. That's why l think the building's relation with it environment, it function, and design identity has to be interpreted by considering this situation during the design process.
