Project : MIKS RESIDENCE
Date : 2012
Location : İstanbul / Türkiye
Employer : Dumankaya
Construction Area : 120.000 m²
Miks is located on Halkali, a new developing residential district of Istanbul.
It is a compelling project owing to its sloped topography and the necessities of functional
variability. On this triangular site, detached masses are overlapping, based on level differences. Also, public and private spaces are separated using horizontal blocks.
We managed to turn the hilly landscape into a positive data by creating terraces and by implementing interesting landscape elements.
In this project we created 2 residential towers of 32 and 23 floors.
In trying to assure the best lake views, we at the same time created a form that shapes the new silhouette of this city.
On the ground floor of our project we placed commercial space which was lacking in this otherwise populated area. We believe that this, in addition to the towers and the overall layout creates a dynamic lifestyle which is in stark contrast with the surrounding gated communities.
