Chapman Taylor design a twin tower living and working complex in Istanbul 

Chapman Taylor’s future project brings the theme of ‘artful living’ to the city of Istanbul. Set on the northern edge of the European side of the city, it is one of the most important developments in Istanbul in recent years. The 150 m high mixed-use development will bring a high quality living and working environment to the area. The total construction area will cover 250,000 sq m and have twin 42-storey towers. The towers will hold 442 residential apartments, 16 penthouse apartments, a 300-bed five-star hotel, 57,000 sq m of A++ office space, and 32,000 sq m of shopping, dining and entertainment areas. 

The architects explain the theme of ‘artful living’, “whereby art should be considered to be influential in all aspects of life”. This idea has shaped the total concept, from the design of spaces to facilities management, creating an innovative place for people to live, work, and enjoy themselves. 

The two main elements that clearly demonstrate the artful living concept, are the design of the spaces, their ‘bodies’, and the management and planning of these spaces, their ‘soul’. This building uses art to answer the needs of the bodies and souls of the people who inhabit it. 

This milestone project for Istanbul is also sustainable, having received LEED Platinum certification for the Core Shell category. 

A building like this will provide a unique, sustainable and artful living space for generations to come.
