Dragos Towers are planned on the Asian side of Istanbul, apartments with views onto the Marmara Sea and the Princess Islands.
The two towers proposed are designed to allow all apartments unit above 5th floor to have maximum views through shaded glass facades. Leaving the big blind surfaces to the back with opportunities for vegetation and alternative energy fields.
The apartment towers are connected at the bottom with a valley of garden units.
Dragos Hill has been a prestigious neighborhood of summer villas that is now enclosed by approaching urban development. As a solution to the inevitable expansion of the city, Dragos Towers offers a fresh take on urban housing (apartments) and its relation to outdoors.
