Type: Residence and Social Facilities
Style: Concept project
Construction Area: 528,000 sqm
Location: Beykoz, Istanbul, Turkey
In this large scale project located in Beykoz, we conducted seasonal shadow and temperature analyses to design this living complex in the most utilitarian way possible. Using the data obtained from these analyses, we created site plans and building placement charts paying attention to the ideal locations of each house on this appropriated land, and we maximized customer satisfaction by not locating any buildings on areas that would stay in the shade.
This site plan comprised semi-medium, large, extra large units and loft villas. The locations and forms of each building were designed under consideration of both the sloped land and the shadow and temperature analysis data. These designs were thus informed by the sustainable design analyses we conduct as part of our concept design process for projects of every scale including small, medium, and large.
