Istanbul-based Tabanlioğlu Architects has set up shop in Lower Manhattan with its first ever office in New York City. The firm, led by Murat Tabanlioğlu, announced on Monday that it’s opening a new office at 111 John Street. The firm, which has offices in Dubai, Doha and London, was founded in 1990 by Tabanlioğlu and his father, Hayati Tabanlıoğlu. Downtown Manhattan has attracted a number of major architecture firms over the years. SHoP Architects; Skidmore, Owings & Merrill; and Hill West, formerly Goldstein Hill & West, all have offices Downtown. Tabanlioğlu’s new John Street office space — 3,000 square feet on the 26th floor — coincides with the firm’s push to expand its work in New York and the United States.
