First phase of the partial spot design processes regarding our proposal “Karşıkıyı”; a part of “İzmir Coastline Regeneration Project” (İzmirSeaİzmirDeniz) initiated by the İzmir Metropolitan Municipality have recently been completed. In this context, “Bostanlı Footbridge which is designed for the Bostanlı Creek mouth, and uniquely positioned “Bostanlı Sunset Lounge” promise genuine idleness spaces and a stirring user experience on one of the unexcelled spots on the shore.

Designed according to its unique location Bostanlı Footbridge with its delicate profile between two banks, allows small boats to pass underneath and dock the floating pier on the edge of the creek. The form of the wood clad steel construction bridge originates from the cascading section profile which encourages users to sit or lean towards the bay view.

Situated on the only fragment of Karşıyaka shoreline that is positioned perpendicular to the sea, Bostanlı Sunset Lounge, is formed of a series of wooden platforms reclining on a wooded hillside, all the way down towards the sea. The  simplicity and fluidity of the surface form encourages the users to get in a closer contact with the sea.
