MESA / Özhan AKÇALI
ACE Architecture was born with the name and personality of Mr. Can ERSAN, gained its rightful place in the industry with his creativity and continues to operate with success with the contributions of Mr. Orçun ERSAN, the representative of the new generation.
Our acquaintanceship with the works of ACE Architecture emerged together with an investment in Urla, İzmir and lasts with Park Oran, a large-scale project in Ankara.
Dear Can (ERSAN) seems to be an ordinary man but he is an extraordinary man with a unique personality. He is a calm and in-love-with-architecture “architect” who does not express his personal traits out loud and who does not boast himself and the things he has accomplished. I put an emphasis on the word “architect” because I render architecture as an adjective rather than an occupation. Architecture, the adjective one deserves by living with the same scale as what he looks at, what he sees, what he thinks and what he does…
Besides being calm, another personal trait of Can is that he does not act on a whim and he is quite a logical person. The “word” logic (mantık in Turkish) stems from “speaking” (nutuk in Turkish), just as “logos” means both word and mind in Ancient Greek. Can speaks his mind with his lines on a paper without saying much.
I wish him a continued success. I wish him a peaceful life in “THE town by the sea shore” he has been dreaming of, surrounded by his philosophy books and his LP records not to be found in the market any more. But, what I want to add is that, when it is 5 pm, there is no Türkiye Postaları broadcasting with the long wave frequencey of 1648 meters and some-kilocycle-that-I-don’t-know any more. Millions of other frequencies filled the gap and they are trying to say something yelling out loud like the crescendo at the end of a symphony. But deep inside I know that, among all the fuzz going on, dear Can keeps hearing the soothing melodies of the Turkish classical music.

Roketsan / Hüseyin BAYSAK-Dr. Nevzat ÇAĞLAYAN
It was highly appreciated that ACE Architecture developed quite creative and aesthetic architectural solutions for Roketsan in a very short period of time.

Ortadoğu Group / Deniz ERGİN-Alev ERGİN-Emin ERGİN
We will never forget the agony you brought us in every single phase of designing our new residence. You can be sure that, as soon as we get the chance, we will take our revenge and leave you in great pain.
Some of our plans include providing;
A very bad cigar and a motorcycle with a flat tire to Mr. Can ERSAN,
An Ankara scotch in disguise as the world’s finest smoky scotch to Mr. Orçun ERSAN,
A client who acquired every single architecture-related diploma in the world, yet did not have his share of elegancy to Miss Nilgün DENİZ.
In Turkey, we have been complaining about architects imposing their own likings and choices to their clients without taking the client’s needs and demands into account. With ACE Architecture, this opinion of ours has changed.
During the design and construction phases of our residence, ACE Architecture has become an indispensable project partner for us as they paid attention to our choices and they expressed their professional and social style in the process of reaching the ideal solutions for our residence.
We would like give special thanks to Miss Nilgün Deniz, one of the architects of ACE Architecture, as she simulated the relationship between the residence owner and the spaces of the residence and developed her solutions accordingly.
We believe that ACE Architecture will move on by preserving their standards after their thirtieth year.
Aktif Metropolitan Hotel
I am happy to provide a reference for the ACE Architecture Consulting Engineering Co. Ltd. From the initial stages of our project to final work, ACE has always been professional, straightforwad and honest. We worked in full collaboration with ACE during our project.
The design team is projected on every parameter to make the project more functional, aesthetics but also economic. It was pleasant experience for us to see how effective the design was in the post construction period. The final users of our hotel are impressed by the design.
I’m happy to recommend ACE to anyone seeking a professional, Architectura & Interior design team.
TÜRKKONUT / Selahattin ÖRF
During the preparation phase of urban design drawings as well as the production period of the construction drawings for the superstructure, technical and social infrastructure and landscape design for the 5000-dwelling project named “Ankara Temelli Yenihisar Villa-Kent (Ankara Temelli Yenihisar Viila-City)” executed by TÜRKKONUT ( Turkish Central Union of Building Cooperatives), we had a pleasant collaboration with the experienced, au fait and productive employees of ACE Architecture.

TURKERLER A.Ş. / İbrahim Fevzi Karadeniz
The construction of the Ankara Metropolitan Municipality Building Complex, once called EGO Headquarters, was the first time that I came accross the name ACE Architecture. Back then, I was the deputy director general of Türkerler Co. I would like to denote that, as the architect of a 100.00 square meter project, ACE Architecture and especially Ahmet Can ERSAN whose remarkable efforts, patience of a saint, ability to synthetise aethetics and needs in a brilliant manner and finally his success in the coordination of the administration, the contractor and the other disciplines that were involved in the project are beyond expression. I would like to express my gratitude to ACE Architecture, to all of its employees but in the very first place, to my dear friend Ahmet Can Ersan as they gave me the opportunity to work on one of the most elated projects of my career and in the meanwhile, they shared their professional experince generously with me. I sincerely hope that in the future, they will be providing decent architectural works to our country just as they are doing today.

Çelik Automative LTD. / Mehmet Zafer ÇELİK
We met ACE Architecture while we were designing the realisation of a new space with contemporary touches. After the completion of the construction phase, I figured out that they had such a professional approach and had already thought of every single detail to ensure human comfort.
They are not only a high-quality architectural office, but also they have such high quality personal traits.
I am grateful to Mr. Can ERSAN and Mr. Orçun ERSAN.
I wish a continued success with many more projects.

Yurdakul Engineering LTD. / Mehmet S. YURDAKUL
Working with ACE Architecture taught us how to respect and to be respected in an intensive, exhausting and fast-paced working environment. The projects we worked on together have always taught us a great deal and provided us with the pleasure of giving an added value to the creativity. I hope this cooperation will carry on for years.

K Engineering and Consultancy LTD. / Nüvit KARAİBRAHİMOĞLU
We had a chance to get to know ACE Architecture 4 years ago. In the meanwhile, we completed 5 large projects with great joy and pleasure. In order to recall the memories of previous projects in such an affirmative way, which is usually an unpleasant experience, two factors can be considered as highly significant, in my opinon. The first is that father and son Ersans are true gentlemen and the latter is that they value engineering.
