Turkish firm Ziya Imren Architects has won a competition to design the Beykoz School complex in Istanbul, Turkey.
The design is embedded within the steep site’s natural surrounding and organising school as a “cascading” hierarchy of spaces.
Ziya Imren organised the school’s main circulation around a series of “green squares” and urban terraces.
The social areas of the school are aimed at both public and student use, directly connecting to its major units, including the auditorium, library, pool and sports centre.
The cascading level offer an optimum of natural lighting to all teaching areas as well as providing spectacular views of the surrounding nature and Bosporus.
