Northern Cyprus Coastal Planning and Design Project
The main aim of the studio project was suggesting a new urban design perspective for the development of Girne (Kyrenia), the northern coast of Cyprus. Due to its specific location, the ill-defined boundaries between urban and rural areas around the city, the future development of Girne falls uncertain. The main design problem, in that context, was an extensive second‐home development on the coast, which caused urban sprawl in Girne. Therefore re-utilization of the traditional building typology of ‘yalı’ was specified as the main objective of the new design proposals. Based on the selected issues, an integrated coastal plan for the whole catchment area of the waterfront. Accordingly, spatial and architectural models were produced on special project areas. Finally, detailed urban codes for the proposed development area with reference to those concepts were provided.
