Challenge: brainstorming, conceptual design and detailed design of the ornamentation of the new Turkish Embassy in Berlin. We developed and designed a new language of girih-pattern, which is changing in form, colour and material, depending on different circumstances. The pattern is applied in the following building elements: The main gate is made from metal, the front with laser-cuted stone, the inner glas-front printed, tapestry for the ballroom, carpets for various uses.
