- Services: Architecture
This project represents our second commission for Belgian developer, Extensa. Both projects are located within the emerging Bomonti district in Istanbul but target different residential market sectors.
Our design responds carefully to the local context and achieves a high level of efficiency and sustainability. The orientation of the apartment block is aligned on a north south axis so that all of the apartments face either east or west to receive relatively equal amounts of sunlight,
louvres to all apartment windows help to reduce solar heat gain, external GRC cladding panels provide a cost effective and durable external envelope system and achieves a high standard of thermal insulation.
Colour on the elevations enhance the vertical proportions of the building and provide a human scale to the facades, creating a strong building identity.
