ISTANBUL | Le Prue | 52 fl | 32 fl | Pro

Le Prue


FLOORS: 52 fl & 32 fl
ARCHITECT: Enrico Iascone Architetti/Gesidi Engineering Architecture, Italy

Like the bows of ships navigating toward the Bosphorus, the new triangular towers are located in a former military area in the heart of Istanbul. The area, which currently has no-access zone,will through the new project become an urban texture reconnecting to the surrounding neighborhoods.
The building shape merges with the plaza design and footh paths. The result is a clear geometric design that draws inspiration from typical Turkish cultural forms (Blue Mosque wooden entrance door decorations), and evolves in a new, strong and very recognizable modern architecture. As Islam spread from nation to nation, Islamic artists combined their affinity for geometry with existing traditions. This art expressed the logic and order inherent in the Islamic vision of the universe. Specifically the triangle by tradition is symbolic of human consciousness and the principle of harmony.
The green lancaped area is a unique and irreplaceable part of the new living space. A real ‘urban hill’ with tall trees and a rich vegetation is situated in the northern side and is facing existing low rise buildings . An ‘urban park’ is at the disposal of the citizens in the southern part of the site.
Thanks to their positioning inside the site area, the towers allow the maximization of building surfaces exploitation and in virtue of their shape they optimize the sun exposure and do not overshadow the nearby new buildings which maintain the same characteristics of the surrounding neighborhood: mix usage, low rise buildings. On the south side of the towers, big terraces enrich residential and offices spaces.
The commercial part is designed to differ from the classic shopping mall and it is envisaged to be enjoyed in different ways. The combination of squares, driveways and pedestrian paths give the possibility to enter shops from inside and outside depending on the choice of the visitor and weather conditions. The commercial part is endowed with lots of stylish and exclusive places to visit like bars, restaurants, gardens or fountains. They will all differ from the other and thanks to this great variety the costumer will never ‘feel lost’.
