The villa settlement Cubuklu is situated at the urban edge of Istanbul. Here are emerging exclusive single family houses in an extreme slope location. The aim of landscape design is to mediate the nearness to nature in place and to enfold individual characters for the different building typologies. The generously designed park invites to staying by water terrace and water fall. The centrally located club house with sport facilities and cultural offers works as a social meeting point for the future inhabitants. The surrounding woods frame the settlement and generate a soft transition towards the existing nature. The ecological character is increased by the use of local shrubs. Light installations set into scene at night the bizarre landscape of rocks and area breaks.
