Designed by Umit Yetgin Aykac and Oya Saydam, the Visage Hotel is an eco-friendly hotel that is designed to maximize natural air flow.

It is typical for a hotel to be a closed space with not much in the way of air flow, but the Visage Hotel defies this tradition. The exterior of the Visage Hotel is built primarily of glass and other porous materials to allow for more natural light as well as natural air circulation, which together gives the hotel an open and fresh ambiance. The openness of the structure and its internal breeziness also ensure that it blends well with its surroundings. The designers have also designed the Visage Hotel so that the need for external power sources is reduced.
