Aleks Istanbullu Architects is an award-winning professional design studio with aesthetic foundations rooted in the Modernism of Europe, Chicago, and Southern California. We work in a creative environment with a team of architects committed to producing contemporary architecture. Our balanced practice resists niche marketing and addresses design challenges that range from smaller single-family housing to community institutions.
Our process distills each design premise to a core set of requirements and desires. Within this context, we aim to craft buildings that last and inspire. We respect the nature of materials, both traditional and new, and carefully detail our buildings to celebrate the craft of our profession, while optimizing the effectiveness of current technologies and labor. Our high ratio of built projects demonstrates our realistic approach to design, as well as our experience in guiding projects through the construction process.
Aleks Istanbullu’s continued commitment to teaching, competitions, and collaborations with other architects maintains the intellectual rigor and contemporary spirit of the studio.
