and urban life of Istanbul, is a unique project that has a smooth connection with the
surroundings and is a natural part of the urban landscape through its car park and its
connection to the subway. Trump Towers are located in Şişli, a central location, in short
distance to the bridge, and important districts such as Etiler, Levent and Beşiktaş. It
rests on a total area of approximately 23.370 m², 13.300 m² of it designed as open
space. The design which shapes both the urban and the private use-oriented outdoors
and contains the conceptual design of the terrace and the courtyard of the towers, was
based on a linear sequential setup that defined the utilization of all the gardens.
Appreciation towards DS Landscape for providing the following description：
linear pattern, both facilitated a 3-D perception of the garden and provided a natural
path within the garden. A horizontal mobility was obtained through the coupling of
different patterns, and on the vertical, through the trees located by means of the
elevated topography, through the linear walls and the covering materials. The seating
elements, shaders, and the water elements brought diversity in the linear setup. The
freshing and elevated feeling created by the two towers was repeated by means of the
strong horizontality on the garden planes. The concept of the entire project aimed to
simplify the perception of the spaces through a common design perspective.
planned to create an urban area that attracts people to the building, and also that is
used as a transition and a service area. The square became a meeting point with its
catering platforms, its pool that matches the refraction of the ground, its green wall,
which is also a symbol of eco-technology, that filters out the noise and dirt of outside.
from the city's chaos. It was intended that the linear lines, on which the design is based,
is to be felt most intensively in this garden, where several utilization possibilities were
offered to the user as a multi-purpose open space. While one of the terraces was
designed as a transition, walking and recreation area with the highest botanic intensity,
the other terrace was designed as a garden carrying out the function of an open space
and sunbathing area. The linear water elements in the sunbathing area was included in
the design in order to cool the area in the hot weather and to create several reflecting
residential areas respectively, are created without irrigation necessities. It was aimed to
form a sustainable inner garden and including a small joke in the design. As planting
material, imitations with striking colors were preferred and an abstract garden image

instead the light that is reflected from the trees and the reflecting surfaces was used.

the lighting equipments generates different perspectives, all the while sustaining the
character of a garden offering variety.
