Cityscape with modular units
Self-empowered design process
SELF SUFFICIENT ZEROs
The novel coronavirus emphasized a requirement for change in people`s both living& working environment -in terms of its multidimensional functionality and definition -as an extension to the accommodation.
The main issues which this pandemic lead us to re-imagine are:
- The importance of Self-sufficient living,
- The link between humankind and the nature,
- Digitization in delivery of goods and manufacturing,
- Irreversible transition to zero carbon infrastructure.
This technology-driven modular home proposal will allow its future residents to shape their units -whether in a remote location or within a cityscape- with the help of an online journey.
People will be starting their self-design process by selecting an appropriate plot and complete it with furniture selection. They would be able to create a self-sufficient tiny house with 15m2 footprint or a larger dwelling up to 145m2 GIA by using 3,9m. x 3,9m. modules in accordance with their requirements.
Main structural elements of the units will be made of CLT (Cross Laminated Timer). SterlingOSB Zero panels will be used for Internal Walls &Ceilings and Vertical Farming Feature. The roof lights will function as a delivery intake for Drone Network and Photovoltaic panels will provide off-site energy to the homes.
Main features of the proposal are:
• Adaptable and self-sufficient units with farming facilities such as Hydroponics or greenhouses
• Skylight with integrated drone window for delivery infrastructure
• Low carbon technologies such as solar panels and rainwater harvesting
• Off-site construction and digitization in manufacturing
South West Corner
Park Modern is an an ultra-high-end development facing south over Hyde Park and Kensington Palace Gardens, representing Hyde Park’s finest park-side architecture to date. The fluid, modern architecture has an attractive, wave-like façade designed to maximise the views over the ‘green sea’ created by the adjacent trees and park. The upper floor apartments and penthouses are elevated high above the tree line with the spectacular south facing aspect providing sunrise to sunset views including Kensington Palace, Royal Albert Hall, the Shard and the City of London skylines.
The project consists of 57 high-end apartments, Healthcare Centre in Basement Levels, a Restaurant on Ground Floor and Amenity Spaces including SPA and Swimming Pool in B3.

CONFLUENCE BEACH HOTEL
Design approach of Confluence Hotel is to synthesis between natural and
artificial and to integrate local inspirations and international practices in the
premises where customers feel like home no matter where they came from.
Flow is represented throughout the design by dynamic shapes inspired by
nature. Biophilic elements like Green walls and natural forms in the design
underline the continuous cycle in the environment.
This interior design proposal aims to create peaceful yet colorful environment for office workers by neutral colors, artworks and greenery elements.

URBAN OASIS CONCEPT
Under the pressure of over-population, climate crisis and migration, It is clear that Megapolises need to look at innovative solutions in order to increase greenery spaces for their residents rather than sacrificing them in a way to new developments.
This experimental proposal is not only aiming to increase the living standards in the dense urban areas but also to create a local, circular economy. Main goals of the project are defined as :
Providing people with accessible green areas as a response to irresponsible urban development,
Creating an urban oasis in order to prevent air pollution, heat island affect and floods by creating a micro-climate zone,
To integrate agriculture with the daily life in urban zone in order to create local circular economy against possible food crisis.

Free Form Shell
Pushkinsky Cinema Hall takes place in Pushkinsky Square in Central Moscow. In time, the cinema hall became a kitsch due to lack of care and useless billboards and decors. Project aims to purify the appearance of the building and cover it with an interactive, transparent sphere. This media shell will also has an ability to reflect all the film posters, fragments and advertisements.
Furthermore, the visual sphere is assumed to serve as an open-air cinema screen since re-integration of the cinema hall with the the city is of vital importance. Pushkinsky Cinema Hall - with this vision, hopefully - will once again become an attraction point in the city.
Ada House is located in beautiful Kinaliada (island) district of Istanbul. This cosy summer house is decorated with a taste of art and also, it features an elevated tea house in the small courtyard which allows occupants to enjoy sea view.
