NoXX Apartment / CM Architecture

NoXX Apartment is located in a narrow dead end in Cihangir. Due to the location of the Project and the short timing for construction, conventional construction techniques seem unattainable, therefore a steel structure apartment building is designed with an industrial sensibility and as a homage to the rare standing structures from early century typical of the area.

Arkadia / IND

Goztepe is a southern neighborhood in the Asian side of Istanbul. The area is a densely arranged fabric of isolated towers made in the last 50 years usually in close proximity to each other. As Istanbul grows its footprint outwards the city, urban planners have put forward a strategy to counterbalance this trend by allowing densification of existing neighborhoods.

Kilic Ali Pasa Hamam / Cafer Bozkurt Architecture

The Kılıç Ali Paşa Hamam was constructed in 1580 by Master Architect Sinan, on behalf of Ottoman Admiral Kılıç Ali Paşa as part of a larger ‘külliye’ complex, in the Tophane district of Istanbul. As the physical manifestation of a unique period in the historical harbor of the Ottoman imperial city, the Kılıç Ali Paşa hamam has become not only part of public space again in the Tophane area, but also part of an overall revitalization of a previously derelict area in the city. 430 years of layered materials and debris, literally ‘embalming’ the surfaces and ‘burying’ the structure, had to be removed in order to identify and restitute the original Sinan building, thus relinking this 1st degree historical monument back to its origins.

Video: Emre Arolat's Sancaklar Mosque From Start to Finish

Earlier this year, Emre Arolat Architects completed their Sancaklar Mosque, "a simple cave like space" in Istanbul which through its humble exterior forms and emphasis on connection to nature, offers a "dramatic and awe inspiring place to pray and be alone with God." Over a period of 24 months, SGMStudio (Sarraf | Galeyan | Mekanik) documented this work, as the elements of the mosque gradually emerged from its steel rebar framework. "While recording the progress of the construction throughout passing seasons, the film aims to portray the building's existence within nature and its percept of space with the sensibility of the structure it purposes to narrate," say SGMStudio. Set to dramatic backing music, "the film dwells on the tension between the technical and engineering-centric implementation and humble and tranquil art of building with its pacing."
