The philosophy we follow on every project is virtually identical. Design and construct ecologically sensitive and functional outdoor living spaces. What we mean by this is quite simple; the relationship between people and the environment should be simply what we are stating “a relationship”.

THE ISTANBUL veliefenedi

The İSTANBUL Veliefendi Residences is neighboring Istanbul’s historical peninsula, Located in 1 km from the coast of the Zeytinburnu, luxury segmented residence blocks and shopping mall project It is neighbouring to the city’sonly Hippodrome ,Veliefendi and the project’s other property is ıts beside the two important ring roads just a few minutes from the Projects land, that provides easily aceess to the city.
When “The İstanbul “ Landscape Project requested from Betula ,The Team have analyzed the project, by various aproaches that it could be feasible, innovativeand sustainable.
-Simple architectural analysis;
The modern architecture design is composed from 15 luxury residential high-rise building, with the horizontal shopping block and social centers form.
-Landscaping projects ; 80% of the landscape Project area is between the property boundary and a courtyard narrow corridor formed by the plan of the buildings .The most important database for the area is its over the basement carpark that causes disadvantage of working in a limited 30-50 cm section .
Customer demands , a large scale of pond ,vehicle, pedestrian and cycling roads and their circulation ,playgrounds,sport fields,recreation areas are the general requirements.
According to the whole database and demands conceptual designs prepared, basing the modern architectural form of the buildings and the layout plans.After the conceptual designs presentation , except a few revisions customers accepted the whole design thus, application projects prepared and designs fully enforced by Betula’s supervision.
We think there are a few important features that separates from this Project from the others inaccordance with customer demand water element that holds he project ‘s big part seems to be unıque but its compossed 8 parts of water bridges and crosssesthat divides the whole pond to parts to enable easily constructed and maintenanced, ease of implementation and operation of the planned bridges and 8 piece meant to be recreational walkway created the perception of the whole detail. 2 parts as applied in biological pond water from the plants of each so that it is provided the possibility to be cultivated.
The remaining 6 pieces is a different technique, kids-safe two-stage reflection pools as planned and implemented. Ponds in the immediate vicinity of the planned for the planned emergency vehicle route, pedestrian flow has a difference in the same natural stone but , this function hosted in different sizes and different treatments . Due to the lack of soil cross-sectional artificial hills, giant pots using soil depth was brought to the desired level and thus provided the soil suitable for big trees. Also “The Istanbul “ Project won the Plant national magazine’s design awards in 2015.
