Our design's foundation was based on world famous scholar Mevlana's philosophy, his masterpieces and Whirling Derwishes' figures since our project is in Konya, home of Mevlana. While designing the functional solutions of the project, we kept our focus on his philosophy on all pieces and colors of primary objects. Major colors are selected from Whirling Derwishes' clothes and completed with golden color which represents the light.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Mevlana says 'Come, come, whoever you are.' To contribute to his desire for uniting, the panels turn into a light above the kiosk. In waiting area, transparency of the seats represents one's inner and outer integrity, the lighting illustrates raising to the skies. Sales department's boxes designed to make customers to feel privileged. Spiral form of Whirling Derwishes' gown is used in sales boxes' geometry. Project's mockup is in the center with lighting that represents a new interpretation.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Every function in the rectangular building, are designed separately but connected to each other. Through the adjunct hallway next to entrance kiosk, waiting area, kids' playground, wet surfaces and offices are located. Adjunct hallway leads to main hallway and main hallway opens up to sales department that is the center of the building. Besides the main door, a secondary exit is placed for the customers who visit sample apartment from the sales department.

Our main objective was to reach to a level where we can carry on region's culture and traditions to a today's modern sales office where we provide solutions for today's needs. We had many visits to Konya to research about region's values. We deeply observed region's most significant icon Mevlana's philosophy and masterpieces. We watched Whirling Derwishes' performances over and over again to determine and research appropriate materials on how to interpret their movements in the best way on our design.
We were to combine our starting point Mevlana's philosophy with a today's sales office with all its functionality and without any written or illustrated object from Mevlana's philosophy. We must integrate our vision to every meter square which hides solutions for today's sales office. We must succeed turning all solid objects into live objects while keeping their nature. We reflected the diversity between Whirling Derwishes with the colors and positioning, that enabled us to solve all the details.
