Nef Points 06

Istanbul, Turkey

STRATA developed architectural design for a multi-family residential building in an urban renewal area of Kagithane, Istanbul. The small site required a compact form that rises efficiently out of the beautiful rolling hills of Kagithane. Four distinct volumes appear to hover atop an active retail front at the base of the building. An attractive and economical palette of natural materials of brick, wood, and brushed stucco is interrupted by punched windows and moments of greenery and providing a warm composition for the building.
