Discussion Coffee House on the Bosporus Commentary

"Built on the edge of the high retaining wall of the 'Taslik' promenade with an exquisite view of the Bosporus. A small structure designed as part of a public park scheme. Its plan adopts the 'Turkish House' type with a central hall/sofa making an acknowledged reference to the 17th century example of Amcazade Koprulu Huseyin Pasa Yali. The reinforced concrete structural frame is combined by an extensive use of wood finishing on both the exterior and the interior."
