Ballikuyumcu Master Plan zone is an area large enough to guide Ankara’s expansion patterns along the Eskisehir Road corridor and is effective enough to influence the city beyond its municipal boundaries. The 7,4 million square-meter project site is positioned 34 km from Ankara city center and 14 km from the intercity ring road, strategically located to impact the ‘balance-point’ of the future expansion along the ring road. The fundamental inspiration behind the design comes from the ‘green corridors’ near the project site that hold together the rural pattern of the surroundings. The design aims at re-interpreting these green corridors and turns them into ‘green axis’ to bind the existing compact urban patterns. The habitable areas exists as independent ‘lots’ and one of the main design goals is to design these lots as compact urban units and connect them within themselves and to the periphery by utilizing the green axis. A ‘corridor of activity’ also manages to inter-connect all these lots with each other. Special project zones are also considered within the green axis to gain additional identity to the project site. Some of the functions with the project site include residences, commercial areas, schools, a university compound and other social/recreational areas.
