Five Herons

The location on the Marmara Sea with the large "half-moon-bay" and the softly rising hills beyond lend Büyükçekmece its special and unique character.

The large promenade along the half-moon-bay presents a great potential and reminds one of the Côtes d'Azur.

The solid urban surroundings with their homogenous structural height crave an urban answer in a special design – and "normal" high rises cannot be this answer.

An artistic approach was found to make the site into a sculpture park. The shapes of the sculptures are based - unsurprisingly - on water birds. Even the adjacent street is called by a bird name (Albatross).

So now there are five herons standing at the water’s edge stretching their beaks in various directions.

The development of the "Bird Sculptures" occurred over a private internal street. The buildings are at various heights on the terraced premises.
The entrance is in the so-called socle (base) of the sculpture, accessible over a wooden boardwalk.

Each building stands in a water basin that connects to the private pool by means of a waterfall.

A special fitness and wellness area with natural lighting is envisioned for the terraced ground floor.
