Facts

  • The five towers house a total of approx. 1,500 apartments.
  • This is Turkey's first LEED-registered residential project.
  • The buildings are oriented so as to minimize solar gain, thus requiring less energy to heat in winter while cooling down more quickly in summer.
  • A cogeneration plant provides electricity for the development.
  • Wind turbines and solar panels contribute to energy requirements.
  • Rain and greywater are collected and recycled to water green areas.
  • The gradual terraced structure of the residential buildings is intended to reduce per-apartment water consumption by 30%.
  • The project aims to achieve 30-50% water savings, a 35% reduction in carbon dioxide emissions and 24-50% energy savings.
  • The facade is terracotta-coloured near the bottom, evoking the soil, and gradually rises to blue tones near the top, evoking the sky.
