The irregular geometry and more than 20m rise between the edges of the plot have been the primary inputs shaping the project that was submitted to the national competition opened by the Municipality of Sisli, Istanbul.
The distinct functions were divided into separate masses that were placed on the terrain according to the slopes of the surrounding streets. Open spaces accessible from each floor were created on their roofs.
Independent entrances to the education section, social facilities and the sports hall were planned along the “entrance street” covered with the administration section.
The education section was designed as a narrow and multistory mass, in order to maximize natural lighting. Classrooms were planned along the north façade so that they get diffused sunlight.
Along the south façade, vertical/horizontal circulation corridors and galleries were created to enable visual connection between floors, as well as between closed and open spaces.
Operable windows on both interior and exterior façades will enable natural cross ventilation throughout the building mass that spans perpendicular to the prevailing wind directions in Istanbul.
Photovoltaic panels are placed on top of the sports hall and educational section whereas all the remaining roofs were designed as accessible open spaces with hard surfaces and landscaping with local plants.
Vertical sunbreakers made from operable perforated metal panels were placed in front of east and southeast facing façades.
