Re-purposing in mixed use tower

Exploring opportunities for building re-use and innovative environmental design

We are working on a high-profile site in Istanbul that considers the potential re-use of existing buildings alongside the incorporation of Circular Economy principles in construction.

The project brief calls for a lively mixed use tower including residential, hotel, office and public amenity with a reinvention of the ground plane to attract better pedestrian use and a strong street presence.

The scheme looks at a detailed façade design in response to daylight and solar shading requirements as part of a holistic approach to sustainable design. The patterning has been designed to respond the sites history as well as the greater cultural influences.
