GKTFK is a residential project, that will be built in Gokturk, Istanbul in collaboration with DK.
The intent of the project is twofold; one was to create modern and beautiful living spaces and second was to challenge the typical modernist housing blocks that consume the most of the suburban landscape of Istanbul. Consequently, this strategy introduces a new residential typology to the area. A process of deforming the typical block is used with various software techniques. Input data directed the forms to response to programmatic and contextual needs. The residential complex has 3 individual buildings and a ground level park / green zone as community space.
