Total Construction Area
The project area is in the city center of Isparta, in an area with registered buildings. It has strong connections with the city square and the grand mosque and is defined as an important urban area.
In the project, protecting, developing and revitalizing are determined as the basic concept decisions. The reintroduction of undefined areas to the city, new function proposals and utilizing local dynamics are design decisions.
An architectural language that is in harmony with the cultural structure and urban texture of the project area, is associated with its surroundings and addresses the needs.
The landscapes and common areas that work together with residential blocks are graded as semi-public and public.
It is aimed that the designed residential areas provide a livable environment above all. The plan solutions of the residences have been made intelligently to maximize the comfort level of the people who will live here, and the gross / net rates of the apartments have been minimized in terms of being economical.
In terms of appealing to residents and the surrounding population, commercial units such as shopping areas where needs can be met were also proposed within the scope of the project.
Residential - Low Rise
Stage 3 constitutes a residential area of 3018 residences with a total of 2993 residences and 25 doorman apartments. Residential islands are located on the outer wall and reinforcement areas are located on the middle wall. A large national garden is planned in the middle. Reinforcement areas include 3 mosques, official buildings, market and commercial areas, cultural and social facilities, education and health buildings.
Stage 2 includes the functions of residence, residence + commerce and mosque. In the project area consisting of 4 building islands in total, the building block including mosque and residence + trade functions are common, and the housing blocks are located in the other 3 building islands. A common green area is designed in the middle of the project area.
Stage 1 is located adjacent to the D-300 Highway. It has the functions of housing, housing + commerce and mosque. Commercial areas and structures with mosque functions are located closer to the main road. There are only residences at the back of the project area.
The project area is located in the Central district of Baku, which is the capital city of Azerbaijan and also the most populous city with a population of approximately two million, in the west of the city center, near the Winter Garden and Central Park connected by Fuzuli Avenue. In parallel with the park, Abdulla Şaiq Street in the west and Fuzuli Street in the south are the main transportation axes. Access to public transportation stops is provided from Cafer Cabbarlı Street to the east.
The project started as the 2nd stage of a large masterplan project process divided into 5 stages. Therefore, a design language and mass strategy open to possible connections should be followed. The city park, which was initiated as the first stage, formed a holistic park by combining the green areas along the Fuzuli Street, and at the end of the street, it surrounded the second and third stages.
The project area is located in the Central district of Baku, about 2.5 km from the coastal boulevard to the north of the city center. The project is a mixed-use project which comprise two towers as hotel and residence building.
Hergelen, which was settled around an old neighborhood square, has lost its influence today. The fact that the city is gradually losing its identity is easily observable for both experts and the inhabitants. Urban transformation and improvement works have emerged from this point. While preserving the existing urban identity heritage, it is also desirable to uncover it and become better conditions and a renewed region.
Unqualified structures were cleaned, except for registered structures and structures that need to be protected. New axes and parcels were created as a result of the traces of registered buildings. These parcels have been redesigned with targeted functions that will enliven the area.
Retail / Canopy Design
In urban environments the microclimate and spacial comfort are mainly influenced by the wind conditions, which are strongly influenced by high-rise buildings and other man-made structures. For Emaar Square Project we made some wind analysis and researches on the site to explore, firstly the main effects that influence the wind movement and secondly the discomfort areas caused by wind. As mentioned above, a design is that covers the circulation area to prevent the wind coming from top. Also, it is important that this design can focus on problematic areas in order not to lose the feeling of open space, so the air cannot be abandoned. Therefore, it is considered to design canopies in the project area. Since this method will cut the wind from the top and it can be constructed easily and more aesthetically than the others, it has increased to the first rank in the order of our proposals.
