Salon, award winning architecture studio, produce designs and studies in the fields of architecture, art, interior design and urbanism. Salon is led by Alper Derinbogaz as a design practice with emphasize on projects of creative, social and urban values. The collaborative character of the design and research methods result in developing contemporary solutions for interior, architectural and urban conditions. We believe that this moment is the right time to study specific architectures related to the technology and the geography beyond the conventional perspectives of locality or modernism. Named as a reference to the French term, Salon, meaning a gathering space for emerging ideas or criticism, Salon is a dynamic and innovative practice that is based on a collaborative sprit. We care about setting contemporary tectonics on the basis of it. With projects worldwide, the firm’s work ranges in scale from residential, institutional, and civic buildings to large urban planning projects.
