Bostanlı Sea Square

News

Bostanlı Sea Square was designed together with Sunset Lounges as the first phase of the application of İzmir’s waterfront regeneration project (İzmirDeniz) which covers the shoreline from Alaybey Naval Yard to Sasalı Natural Wildlife Park.

A true seashore experience allowing a more natural interface with the sea itself, was created by the incurvation of the promenade inland, without hindering its desired continuity along the coast. The artifical hill between the promenade and the paved road was designed to act as both a visual/acoustic barrier and a natural amphitheater. Across the promenade to the shoreside, terraces of stone paved platforms and wooden decks stage the area and a steel arcade stands to segregate the various terraces on the plan layout. Facing south and west, the setup grants the user a public space to escape the turmoil of the urban life and to just be idle. Furthermore, the configuration also allows for outdoor performances and screenings. First of the Sunset Lounges is located across the pedestrian bridge over Bostanlı Canal to the east.
 
Designed as a plastic architectural element that also provides shade, the arcade invites users to a journey, gathering them from the plaza and driving them all the way to the steps by the sea.

Argos in Cappadocia Photographed by Evren Başbuğ

News

Evren Başbuğ has been invited to the hotel Argos in Cappadocia Uçhisar by Aslı Özbay, the director of Argos Yapı for a special photography project.

Argos in Cappadocia is a rough-lux concept hotel; composed of 6 restorated mansions, located on the eastern slopes of Uçhisar Castle. Restoration and renovation work has been carried on by Argos Yapı on the site since 1996. Up to date, besides the ones that are used as hotel rooms, some major underground cave spaces such as the ‘bezirhane’, the chapel, the crypt and a number of escape tunnels in various sizes have been revealed. The vernacular building complex with its courtyards, terraces and vineyards is merged through the Pigeon Valley as a part of Uçhisar village.

Bostanlı Sea Bath
Aug 11, 2015
Can Özcan
News

Initiated by the İzmir Metropolitan Municipality as a part of “İzmir Coastline Regeneration Project” (İzmir / Sea); partial spot design processes continue, regarding our proposal “Karşıkıyı”. In this context, our proposal for the next focus area after Bostanlı Sunset Lounge,”Bostanlı Sea Bath”, aims to level up the sea coast experience. 

The continuous promenade gets elevated and detached from the sea surface for the only time as manmade layers of the shoreline are “peeled off”. The in-between space revealed by this intervention gets transformed into a beach which will accommodate both sports activities such as beach volleyball and beach football and some recreational activities such as sun bathing and sea bathing. Disadvantages that will emerge as the promenade gets closer to the city traffic will be minimized with an artificial hill which will both serve as a sound / visual barrier and a tribune for the spectacle below.

İzmir reclaims her Mediterranean identity with this urban beach.
