Firm DescriptionS+ ARCHITECTURE is an Istanbul-based architecture and urban design firm led by founding principal Murat Soygenis. S+ provides a platform for design research for wide array of projects ranging from urban to object scale and spanning a great geographic reach. S+ ARCHITECTURE follows a design process dedicated to integration of building and urban context, and finding innovative solutions for specific problems. The firm explores new ways to respond to the specific programmatic requirements of each unique project.

Some of the projects involve new buildings, and renovation of historically important structures as well. S+ ARCHITECTURE’s portfolio of projects were developed with the innovative and technical expertise of the firm and by collaborating with teams of creative architects, engineers and designers.

The projects were exhibited at AIA Baltimore, University at Buffalo, Milan Fair, Polytechnic University of Turin, The Union of Architects of Russia in Moscow and many cities in Turkey.
