All ın less Slums

Market Car park

4th year fırst project











number of homelesses

The site has three things that never changed. Slums, market and car park. This is an advantage because the market has a old history so everyone knows there is a market here. Because of these, programs remained and combined with the new idea.

Population of Istanbul

men %89,8

graduated university %2,4

graduated high school %7,2

women %10,2

don’t konw how to read/write %19,8

graduated primary school %67,7

There is a bÄąg problem rising in our country. People are getting homeless day by day. Because of they are homeless, they cannot find any money even in simple jobs and even they are graduated.

Site is alone among the houses of Besiktas and this shows us the similarity of homeless and this site. Alone in the crowd. The project offers homeless job so they can adapt the daily life again and earn money. They can produce or repair and after that, they can sell on the market.

horızontal cırculatıon 18%

vertıcal cırculatıon 8%

toilets 4,15% technical areas 2,25%

storage 6,85%

health control 6,5% cleanıng-changıng rooms 2,25% laundry 1,6% shop 1,6% hairdresser 1,6%

classes 5%

studıos 17,69%


The other one of the biggest problem is the slums on site. They are also people that try not to become homeless. Now they have edges to build. They can use the matearial they want and build inside the structure.

Taksim is the neighbourhood that is loosing its characteristic day by day and this building symbolize that Taksim has to recycle itself. The building location is next to the water reservoir at the taksim square. The building is the minirecycle factory. People can bring their waste material such as glass, paper, plastic and metal then they can watch all the processes of recycling. Most of the people in Turkey has no idea with recycling so thay can join seminars or workshops so they can learn and make new products with recycled materials. There is an also marketplace that people can sell their product they produce or buy the other products at the ground floor.




Solar panels

On the facade of the building there are solar panels that produce most of the necessary energy of the building.

BErlın ‘Höfe’ order

Our fırst ınterpretatıon about the sıte was the huge spaces. There were hıstorıcal and cultural places ın the sıte (such as church, art lab, cafes, vıntage shops, graffıtıes.) ‘Scaleless’ was our fırst approach to the sıte so we trıed to create a dıffereent ‘höfe’ understandıng.


When started designıng fırst, we thought about who can lıve ın there and accordıng to that socıal profıle, we decıded on whıch programs they want ın theır neıghbourhood. our ıdeas about programs are workshop areas, garage sales, study area, open-aır bar and cınema, cafe and plantatıon areas. We want to desıgn multıple lıvıng areas for people who has dıfferent lıfestyles and thıs gıve opportunıty people that can choose what ıs best for them.
