NoXX Apartments
Istanbul, Turkey
NoXX Apartments is a six-storey building on a small parcel of 165m2 with only two windowed façades, located in a narrow dead end street in a bohemian historical district. Due to the location of the project and the short time available for construction, conventional techniques were unfeasible, and a steel structure apartment building was designed with an industrial sensibility, and as a homage to the rare standing structures from the early-20th century once typical of the area. All the materials used in the building, such as brick, plywood and structural steel, are left unclad inside and outside in order to pay tribute to the architectural history of the area.
