Situated on the European side of Istanbul, this new development of 41 blocks and 315 housing units has been designed to maximise the use of green space, encouraging social interaction and community spirit without compromising residents’ privacy. The low rise residential blocks vary in size and style and are scaled in a hierarchical fashion from the border of the development to the central valley.
The valley at the centre of the development has been designed as a park; the area is traffic free and the green areas follow the natural contours
of the site with cycle and pedestrian paths linking the settlement. The area isactivated with social amenities including children’s play zones, tennis and basketball courts, as well as a social centre containing an open air swimming pool with sun bathing terraces, gym, café and children’s playroom. All of these facilities are designed to enhance neighbourhood interaction. Commercial units are planned on the estate borders to meet shopping and social requirements.
