This speculative project is located at one of the major intersections of the Tophane quarter in Istanbul. It connects to the existing historical Tophane building and its terraces to create an art gallery and tram station.

The tram station uses the Dolmabahce Palace’s crystal stairs as a starting point, merging with the bridge and platform to create a semi-enclosed space. Within this semi-interior, Tophane motifs re-appear, merging themselves with an Ebru pattern. This pattern creates ambiguity between itself and the form of the space, as well as physicalizes in handrails, lighting elements, and ticket machines.
