I am an highly motivated european architect with ten years of professional experience encompassing a range of projects of varying scales and complexities. Most of my works concern medium-large building scale in different Countries.

I just fiished a Post Graduated Master at the Economic Faculty of Rome Tor Vergata (vote 110 cum laude\110) improving my analytical side and a know-how as Real Estate Developer Architect to better assure clients and their projects about the sustainability of an investment.

After my all experience among Europe (Germany,Ireland,Italy,France) and Turkey, I need to develop and compare myself in a cosmopolitan and mixed city, like me. I feel now ready to share my knowledge and the need to grow up continuously.

But first at all... I believe in architecture and in the design resilent energy of a project.

When I turned back in Italy, I tried to create a market even if the economical issues were against me, co-founding Howo architecture. I believe always that the sacrifice and the effort gives you something back. And in some of these projects, I received even more. The relations and the satisfation of a client after a job is the best feedback to transform in a "feedfront" for the next projects.

It was also important the relationships that I had and I'd love to keep going with some office\architects as Matteo Gennari Architecte (Nice-France) and with the interior furniture enterprise Cierreesse.

The office gave me the responsability of the design process of mostly of the architectural project coming inside the office. Thanks to this studio and to the people that were inside it, I grew up as architect and as person day by day. Still now, I feel part of this group.

Furthermore, I was project manager and architect of the winning competition "kucukcekmece arena spor kompleksi", now under construction.

My role was on the site-construction. Everyday working on two buildings:
1) New construction of an hospital building - 40000 sqm;
2) Renowal of an office building - 1000 sqm.
In this time I learned the delicate relation between the project team and the site construction workers.
