Located on Celaliye Istanbul Street, the building was designed by architect Osef Sarafyan, born in 1932 and graduated from Istanbul Technical University in 1956. Having stayed in the USA for a while, Sarafyan worked with Minoru Yamasaki and had the opportunity to take part in important projects such as the Twin Towers.
The building, which was published as "A Summer House in Kumburgaz" in Arkitekt Magazine, was mentioned as "Derya Yalı" in the municipality records. The building is described as four apartments where 4 crowded families will reside in the summer and benefit from nature.
The findings of the research were presented and published in DOCOMOMO_TR, Local Expansions of Modernism in Turkish Architecture XVII.
