My name is Nazif Çataloğlu Dilaver ; I was born in the year of 1979 in Kyrenia. For the last 15 years, I work as an architect in our island and different countries abroad. Despite of living in Germany, I feel lucky every day to be born in an island like Cyprus. I returned back to the island after getting my bachelor’s degree from such a good quality university like EMU, and my master’s degree from University of Birmingham, England. I then started my professional life in Özyalçın Construction Company and then established NZF Architecture Office in 2007. In this 15 years, I had the chance to carry out a number of projects in my own profession and in associations of “JCI Young Entrepreneurs and Leaders Association” and “TRNC Underwater Community” actively working as chairman and member of management. Being awarded the prize “Best Environmental Project” in Turkey, 2008 and Europe, 2009 was such an honor for me. I live with the awareness that we have to develop as integrated to the world from Cyprus and improve what we do everyday in order to go beyond oneself. Hence, we should never forget that we have to challenge ourselves in every design.
