Info

DESIGNED ON A 100.000 M² LAND IN CENGELKÖY, ÜSKÜDAR, MAIN IDEA OF THE CONCEPT IS TO BRING OLD ÜSKÜDAR HOUSES BACK IN LIFE AT ITS OWN REGION. BACKGROUND OF THE CONCEPT IS GENERATED BY THE COLLECTION OF SOCIOLOGICAL AND PHYSIOLOGICAL DATA OF DISTRICT AND CONSIDERING THE SHEER SLOPE OF THE LAND. IN ADDITION TO THAT, EVALUATING HISTORICAL DISTRICT HOUSES AND STREETS, CERTAIN TRADITIONAL ELEMENTS CAME FRONT SUCH AS BAY WINDOWS, WOODEN SUN SHADING ELEMENTS, AND CANTILEVER ROOFS AS WELL AS TEXTURE OF STREETS, WATER FOUNTAIN, AND OLD TOWN SQUARES IN CITY SCALE.
