The PROJECT

JFA was commissioned by TASYAPI to develop a concept mixed-use master plan for a 19.25 hectare parcel of land located approximately 2 Kilometers west of the Ankara’s city center. JFA was asked to design a high-density residential district while preserving the site’s topographic, landscaping, and cultural characteristics. During the analysis stage, JFA identified the need for a new town center for this growing area that is home to Haceteppe University as well as other prestigious academic institutions. Borrowing heavily from the Ottoman town planning concept of the “Kulliye”, JFA was able to successfully blend a new residential high-rise district organized around a traditional commercial Maydan at it’s center. The resulting master plan creates an urban focal point and destination intended to be used by the development’s residents and visitors alike.
