‘konforist edu.suites’ is an all-male dormitory developed by renda helin design & interiors. two blocks, placed in separate areas of a common building in eyüp, istanbul, turkey provide students distinct areas for private and public needs. the custom suites are furnished with all necessities, and available in private or multi-roommate variations. for shared rooms, signage (A, B, C, etc.) and colors prevent possible confusions between occupants.

‘VIP 1’ lounge, living area




in contrast to private areas, ‘konforist’ features a plethora of common areas to promote socialization. these include: café, two VIP lounge/living spaces (with terrace), barbecue patio, hobby kitchen, study hall, computer room, in-house cinema/ video game room, and game room — ping pong, pool, darts, pinball. sports and fitness is also emphasized. students have full access to a gym, sauna, massage room, and infirmary.

‘konforist edu.suites’ bestows many luxuries to its inhabitants; to keep them from swaying in their academic attentiveness, helin introduced symbolic blackboards throughout select commons areas. placing importance on the near future, it stands as a constant, if subtle, reminder about the purpose of their stay
