His mastery of materials and detail may well be the mark of a practitioner in search of perfection, a quality which, although not always sought in Modern Architecture, was one of Abdurrahman Hancı's fundamental characteristics. With this aim in view, he is well known for his work with craftsmen on building projects and with artists in their studios. To me, he resembles Sedad Eldem and Nezih Eldem. In an environment in which teachers declare that there is no need for architects to produce preparatory projects or for them to worry themselves with the details, this is undoubtedly a very rare quality.
Hancı is also distinguished from colleagues of his own and the following generation as an architect who has made extensive use of contemporary Turkish art. Bedri Rahmi, Füreya Koral, Erol Akyavaş and, above all, Mustafa Pilevneli were not only intimate friends, they were also artists with whom he worked very closely, whose help he enlisted and whose works he integrated in his projects.
