turkish practice emre arolat architects, EAA, has recently completed ‘göktürk arketip housing’, a residential block in istanbul, turkey. rows of mobile wooden screens border the perimeter of the structure, creating a shifting aesthetic as inhabitants open and close the panels to introduce cooling breezes or protect from the sun. placed along a north-south axis, the collection of buildings are wrapped around public spaces while voids between structures contain gardens. each flat contains a linear plan with a shared entry, hallways, living areas and terraces to accentuate opportunities for natural light.
