KoruFlorya, Istanbul

 

Completed in 2016, Koruflorya is a major 280,000 sqm mixed-use development in the Florya district of Istanbul, Turkey. The residential element of the project was designed by team members of MCAU in collaboration with a local architectural practice Kraft Mimarlik.

The scheme features 86,000 sqm of residential space, with 300 high-end dwellings and apartments, and 50,000 sqm of retail space, across a two-storey shopping mall, with 200 shops, and includes a health and fitness centre.

The design takes inspiration from the close proximity of local forests and the sea and a sustainable approach was a key aspect of the project through integration with adjacent public transport links and the inclusion of features such as a green roof.

The residential portion of the scheme was designed and led by Neil Brown and Stephen Clewes, whilst at Broadway Malyan Architects.
