BG Architects perceives design not solely as an architectural output, but rather an integrated processand believes that interdisciplinary interaction is key to achieve the best possible outcome. Since the launch of the firm, BG Architects has been collaborating with different professionals on different fields, and has realised more than 3 million sqm of architectural projects.

One of the preliminary examples of this approach is Ozyegin University Cekmekoy Campus which consists of 13 buildings designed and overseen with Princeton-based design partner ARK, over the last decade.
