My Raffles


Salon is an office established in Istanbul in 2009 by Alper Derinbogaz to work on research and design in the areas of architecture, art, interiors and town planning. The office has a clear focus on creative, social and urban values with the potential to enrich the design experience and on collaborative practices as the best method for generating contemporary solutions. In particular, much attention is concentrated on forms of architecture that relate to technology and on the geography that acts as the backdrop for traditional perspectives of localism and of modernity. The name chosen for the office is a French term (also adopted in English) that describes a place where people come together to discuss and exchange new ideas and critical opinions. The office has worked on projects all over the world, aiming in a variety of directions: residential, institutional, civic and major urban renewal projects. In 2014, Deringobaz represented Turkey at the 14th Venice Architecture Biennale, on the occasion of the Turkish Pavilion’s début, and in 2015 he won the A+Architizer Award.
