the founder

After receiving an Honorary Degree in 2014 for the completion of an Architecture Degree in the Izmir University of Economics —where she also successfully completed a Risk Management Certificate Program—, Bengisu Ayşen Özpirinççi started to work in the Project and Business Development Department of DAP Holding in Istanbul. While working at DAP Yapı, She had the opportunity to see and complete many projects on a large scale in Istanbul and Izmir.


During her university years, she also did an Exchange Program at Mississippi State University, and she had the opportunity to work on three different projects at New York Strata Architects throughout her time in the USA.


Since 2018, she has been working on how to develop affordable housing in Portugal and Turkey, taking into account the World Real Estate Market. She became the first Turkish Architect registered with the Portuguese Chamber of Architects.


Bengi works mostly on multi-functional projects in Portugal and Turkey but provides services to French, Turkish, Israeli, Chinese, Brazilian, Argentinean, and Portuguese companies.


In Portugal, there are currently 15 projects completed and ongoing.
Working with artists in each of her projects together with Architecture and Project Management, she carries out art and architectural work together to have the relationship of art from the beginning to the end of the project.


One of the recent projects she has just started is “Memories”. Starting with memories and works of art in the 200-year-old historical building in Principe Real, the project is accompanied by Portuguese artists throughout the entire design process.
