Miracle Residence

BFTA Mimarlik as Architects

The project site is at the Istanbul's asian side and is near to Sabiha Gokcen Int. Airport. Site was some 50m.x300m. in dimensions, southeast-northwest direction and opposite 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 is like the gate of this promising area. It consists two 100m. blocks and creating 250m. long hotel and residential block with the social volumes between them. 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 fibe-cement 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 waterscapes, sports grounds and pool.
