Sürdürülebilir Sosyal Konut

wooden co-housing

The pattern and pace of life today is quick and fast and communal traditions and activities that combine and bring together people of different age groups and backgrounds have become less and less common. However, it is this diversity and collective activity that shape us into well-rounded, compassionate, contributing individuals. Thus, this project aims to bring back these communal activities to blur the lines between different demographics and bring them closer together so that they can learn from and interact with one another.

The wooden co-housing is located in Ankara near the landmark observation tower, Atakule, the botanical garden, and portakal cecegi (park). This project aims to allow residents of the complex as well as their neighbors to easily access these green areas in the dense urban environment through bringing down the roads and changing them to tunnels, thus, the roads are given back to pedestrians. This shall encourage walking and physical activity among the residents as well as people working in that area.

Massing Concept 

In response to the sun path, the structural grid, the pedestrian paths , and the community connection, different blocks are placed with different qualities to provide a variety of choices within one complex to attract people of different professions, backgrounds, and ages to co-live in this complex.

Flexible and adaptive living

The co-housing units aim to offer a variety of living spaces, sizes, and experiences where every unit has a special quality, thus, providing residents with a feeling of ownership and customization in today’s often insensitive building apartments. One can choose to enjoy a balcony, indoor garden, courtyard, common kitchen, or the city view. The co-housing complex is split into two parts so as to accommodate to as many tastes as possible. The eastern section is close to common spaces and events whereas the western section is away from these lively activities for residents who enjoy quiet environments.
