- Istanbul, Turkey
- Client: Extensa Group
- Size: 1 hectare site
- Services: Master Planning
Our initial commission from the Extensa Group was a master plan and urban design appraisal of the Bomonti district, in central Istanbul. The objectives were to validate the local municipality zoning constraints, determine the appropriate mix and quantum of development and identify opportunities where value could be enhanced by improved public realm design.
The master plan explored how this area of Bomonti could be improved by coordinating the building footprints, public realm design and land uses, thereby enhancing the value of the building plots.
The study set a clear context vision for the plots owned by the Extensa Group, and identified the importance of regeneration of the central organic market and car park building as a civic focus for the area.
Extensa Group was progressive in their development approach and thinking. Equally our design strategy responded by creating designs that will provide a delightful and enjoyable place where people want to live. Two of the new residential buildings, Bomonti Apartmens and Bomonti Modern Palas are now complete.
