Istanbul is experiencing another construction boom. Concrete buildings appear one after another in the city, randomly filling the free space. To change the situation for the better and somehow integrate the buildings into the natural environment, the Danish architect proposed a project for a residential complex, the facades of which will be covered with many vertical gardens and green spaces.
Danish architect Julien de Schmedt (Julien de smedt) presented the concept of a new original residential complex, consisting of several buildings Istambul Summits … It will be located between the rapidly developing regions of Esenyut and Basaksehir. While engaged in the project, the architect was inspired by the hills of Cappadocia (a region in Central Turkey). The new residential blocks will also remind you of the amazing terrain of the region. Through vertical gardens and roofs covered with green spaces, the complex will be in perfect harmony with nature.
The complex will include three main structures: a building in the form of an infinity sign (Infinity park), a house resembling a coiled snake (Cappadocia Residences), and a few more vertical buildings. The architect named them "Tetris Village" (Tetris Village).
The total area of the complex will be 400,000 square meters. The start of construction is scheduled for the end of 2015. The cost of the project has not yet been announced.
The trend of non-standard urban greening is very popular lately. Paris is planning to build 8 ecological residential towers completely covered with green spaces.
