Ziya Imren Wins Competition for Instanbul's Beykoz School Complex

Ziya Imren Wins Competition for Instanbul's Beykoz School Complex

Ziya İmren Architects has recently won an invited competition for the design of the Beykoz School complex in Istanbul. The firm’s winning proposal distinguished itself by embedding its layout within the steep site’s natural surrounding and organizing school as a “cascading” hierarchy of spaces.

Though a central pedestrian path was challenging to establish, considering the site’s topography, the practice organized the school’s main circulation around a series of “green squares” and urban terraces. Intended for both public and student use, these social areas directly connect to the school’s major programs, including the auditorium, library, pool and sports center. 

In addition to providing spectacular views of the surrounding nature and Bosporus, the cascading levels ensure optimum natural light for all teaching areas.
