From the architect. The project is located at the Istanbul's asian side near Sabiha Gokcen Int. Airport. Site was some 50m.x300m. in dimensions, along southeast-northwest direction and facing the highway at north.

The recently opened Sabiha Gokcen Airport is the only alternative in the city for the over crowded European side Ataturk Int. Airport. Since the availability of the new airport, new demands for dwelling and retail created denser land use and offers new opportunities for the Kurtkoy district.

Miracle Residence seems as a gate for this promising area. It consists two 100m. blocks creating 250m. long hotel and residential block with the social facilities in between. This 25m.x250m. long surface not designed as if its another ordinary building in the area but, taken as a residential block design experiment.

Unique fibecement blocks, compact wooden lamine panels, standardized windows creates its own harmony as design elements. Since the block resides south edge of the site, there's so many potential uses on paysage, like water scapes, sports grounds and pool.

What attracted us in this building is the facade which used windows as an aesthetical element.

An 'interesting' facade, nothing else

The facade has a fake, ornamental feeling and brings this building into the banal side of nowadays architecture. Personal opinion.

Malachie Z · May 18, 2012 08:56 AM

The facade design is exactly the result of the design software like sketchup, rather than thinking architecturally. It's just doing something quick and pretentious, with no need of intellectual reasoning.
