Izz Cafe Istanbul


The architecture behind the Izz Cafe tapas bar in Istanbul, Turkey is inspired by the ocean current. Uğur Köse and Batu Palmer are Turkish architects responsible for the renovation of the historical building into the stunning Izz Cafe.

To create the Izz Cafe, mechanical elements and pipes were concealed behind a wooden shell designed to resemble a wave. While the building itself was respected as a whole, individual details were carefully thought out and brought to fruition to create a water inspired design.
