Kartal Towers

Istanbul, Turkey

Active Sustainable Strategies

The office towers are clad with exterior metal screens that contribute to general sun shading and heat gain. The design includes a sustainability-minded landscape design with light paving and storm water collection strategies. Other features being considered include planted roofs, demand control, and alternative energy sources. The project will be a signature development for the city and a catalyst for the revitalization of the district into vibrant, sustainable community.
