Project Information

Designed by BFTA Mimarlik, the project is located right next to the airport highway entrance in Kurtkoy.

The plot is 50 m wide and 300 m long and extends in the northwest-southeast direction. The southern end is about 10 m below the northern end. The long facade of the building faces the TEM motorway to the east. Pedestrian and vehicle access to the land is provided by the road to the north.

With the opening of Sabiha Gökçen airport, the increasing demand for housing, trade, office, hotel and supply of suitable land made Kurtköy one of the fastest-built regions of Istanbul. This speed, along with the routine buildings in the region has proliferated. Miracle Residence is located at the entrance of this area from the highway approach.

The project consists of two 100 m long residential blocks approaching the western border of the land and the social facility block between these two blocks. As the series of buildings leaned against a wall of the land, it was easy to plan the ground usage such as various sports areas, swimming pool sun terraces in the long garden in the eastern part of the vehicle, which was completely separated from the entrance and the landscape. A continuous eave at the 2nd floor level of the buildings separates the facades on the ground floors and the facades on this level. On the scale of the situation, the blocks consisting of four parts separated from each other by dialatation are separated from each other by the social facility block.

Thus, the blocks were able to settle at different elevations. A very small common area index could be achieved by means of scissors on the floors. This hall provides access to five apartments on some floors, three apartments on some floors and a floor garden.

Precast the fiber concretes, compact laminate, aluminum balustrades and smoked colored PVC joinery were used on the facades of the buildings. Parapet heights and occupancy-space ratios were interpreted in two standard sizes, each using unique precast panels. In addition, each flat was arranged on a plan level and a limited list of windows was designed. Floor gardens were placed on the western front. Each floor garden is two floors high. The common areas on these floors benefit from daylight. At the end of the building with the floors between the roofs rising over the eaves elevation, the long eaves line was broken into pieces. Thus, two block surfaces were obtained which were cut off with a continuous eave from the ground and formed their own silhouette at the end. These facades were divided into pieces in a grid formed with vertical parapet heights, horizontal room walls and window lines and then classified as wood, woodwork and precast and transformed into architectural language.

Therefore, a prestigious structure has been reached, which provides a continuous and convenient garden, separated from ordinary buildings in the region, and uses the construction area with a small common area index quite economically.
