Ayca qualified in architecture and has 20 years of post-qualification experience. After working in architectural and senior design roles at Foster + Partners and Zaha Hadid Architects, she set up Studio AVC in 2013.

Working for these practices and now her own, she has been involved in a range of high-end design projects, both internationally and in the UK. Her experience includes many small-scale private houses as well as bigger housing developments.

In addition to her role in her practice as a director, she also provides consultancy on large-scale projects and is a member of Merton Council and Wandsworth Council’s Design Review Panel for Wandsworth and Richmond. She also teaches interior design at South Thames College.

I've used [Ayca's studio] for both architectural and design advice and found them excellent. Ayca and the team there have done a great job on my project in Wimbledon and I'd be happy recommending them.

“Ayca is a highly professional, friendly and delightful project partner. She was very efficient and meticulous throughout all the iterations and devoted too. Most of her experience and network originate from her corporate past. We would highly recommend her.”
