Figuratively, Kubra sees architecture through a lens that spans across three continents: Asia, Europe, and North America. She received her bachelor’s degree in architecture from TED University in Ankara, with a minor degree in Communications and Media. Her professional journey started when she worked as an entry-level architectural designer in Turkey where she specialized in architectural communications and public relations. She had roles across all stages of various projects in Europe and Middle East, and multiple residential interior design projects in the United States.
This rich international exposure underpins Kubra’s natural ability to easily connect with people from a variety of cultural backgrounds as well as her capacity to see and communicate design from wider vantage point. She fulfills her constant yearning to elevate her craft as she works alongside the equally talented architects at M2.
