I-Kal Multi-use Complex: A Harmonious Blend of Urban Planning and Architecture
I-Kal multi-use complex stands as a visionary project within the bustling urban environment of Istanbul. Its unique design, created by MESH, harmonizes urban planning and architectural principles to meet the city’s high-density needs. The project’s developers made an eco-friendly choice by utilizing the space beneath the ramps for multiple commercial functions. This not only offers a distinctive experience within the public areas but also aligns with sustainability standards, minimizing land use and excavation.
Unique Residential High-Rises
Energy-Efficiency and Sustainability at the Core
I-kal’s residential high-rises follow a central-core model but introduce a new, visionary element into Istanbul’s dense cityscape. The design emphasizes energy efficiency, contributing to the project’s overall sustainability. Each of the three free-standing blocks maintains spatial quality in apartment layouts. While the flats share a common structure, the arrangement of terraces and facade openings varies across floors, creating a diverse relationship with the urban landscape. Top floors feature penthouse flats, while ground levels cater to the public with amenities like swimming pools, saunas, gyms, coffee shops, and more.
