One and Ortakoy

ORT is a mixed use complex currently under construction in the Istanbul neighborhood of Ortakoy.  The project consists of two buildings; one building is residential and the second is commercial and retail.  Nestled next to a hillside, the project will be an iconic step forward in the modernization of the area.

The project’s form, façade and overall organization developed through a series of experimental strategies influenced by contextual elements. GAD’s design solution optimizes the use of the various programs distributed throughout the site. The roofs on both buildings are intended to be landscaped recreational playgrounds. These green roofs lessen the scale of the buildings, merging them with the existing topography. As well, the natural stone façade that wrap both buildings provides a soft skin blending with the natural hillside setting.
