BEST TURKISH PROJECT

Bosphorus City

Istanbul, Turkey

Developer: Sinpaş Gyo

Architect: Mimarlar Workshop

Bosphorus City Sinpaş GYOLocated in Halkalı, one of the urban transformation districts of Istanbul, the land plot extends in the northeast-southwest direction and provides momentum for Istanbul’s urban transformation with the rich recreational areas and 40 different types of residential buildings with a wide variety of spatial arrangements. The most important element of the masterplan is the recreational areas integrating “water” and “green spaces” and providing enriched outdoor areas. The water divides the space into two shores and creates a dynamic urban network with an inter-transit system. The green spaces are a high quality outdoor design providing possibilities for meetings and gatherings.

PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARD

Akasya Acıbadem Lake & Woods Parcels

Istanbul, Turkey

Developer: SAF GYO

Architect: Mimarlar Workshop

Akasya AcıbademAkasya Lake Parcel has been created through the revitalization of the waterway as a biological pond located at the centre of the land plot. Making this newly-created natural texture a part of the daily life in this parcel, both as a view and a means of recreation, is an element that shaped the design. The fact that the buildings are located in a manner that protects them from the blustering north-east wind has allowed the use of sliding windows even at the towers. The spatial values that were lost at Istanbul during urban transformations were attempted to be revived with the presence of the 10,000 m² area to be utilized as “Woods” for the Akasya project. At Woods Parcel a 40-storey iconic building is designed to create space for the woods. Social facilities, including recreational areas and playgrounds can be accessed by foot without having to encounter any vehicle traffic.
