In terms of the future of today's cities; the interaction of urban actors with the public authorities of local governments is important. This relationship must have qualities that stimulate open and direct social ties, participatory urban awareness. In the design proposal of the municipality service structure, an understanding integrated with the city was adopted, based on the dynamic nature of these relations network, instead of administrative disagreements. It has been tried to respond to the new needs created by the city's dynamic movements such as change and transformation.
Urban Design Strategies
The municipal service building is located at the intersection of the old- new city axes and the touristic axes which is diagonally spreading to the coast. It has a wide range of active and passive green areas in the east and south, as well as a potential focus and a strong transition point due to its many different urban functions. The municipal service building aims to meet the needs of experience, gathering and transition area with its identity as the basic element and organizer of this holistic approach in terms of location, form and urban / architectural relations.
The city cover, which is shaped by the project area with different settlements at different levels provided by the topography, enables the production of hybrid urban spaces by using commercial functions by using public functions as a transition and as a stop. Under the urban cover that settles in the terraced terrain, it creates surprise places for public functions on and within.
Public Commercial Area
Old city - The project area is divided into two in order to maintain the new urban center axis (Karlık street), which extends from the shoreline upwards to the diagonal beach, and an increased public commercial space has been formed as a buffer zone between the socio-cultural public spaces and the public service area. Among the commercial units, it is recommended to include functions such as eating-drinking functions, food market, library, private art center, entrepreneurial offices, incubation center, and functions to ensure that this area is frequented by the city for its attraction.
Multi Square and Courtyards
It is aimed to have a character that catalyses the healthy living, art, urban culture and economic interaction of the building and its surroundings. It is aimed that citizens will be able to make the transition by exploring and stopping with the extended circulation routes while passing through the dynamic buffer zone containing the public commercial functions. In this context, it is aimed that citizens will be able to pass through the dynamic buffer zone that contains the public commercial content that has been ejected and to be able to switch by stretching and stopping with extended circulation routes.
Socio-cultural Public Space
The urban passage, located in the western part of the area, allows for an integrated analysis of the commercial and socio-cultural public spaces .
The cultural center that accommodates a conference center with a capacity of XXX people was turned its face to the old city axis and formed the cultural square as a transition area between them.
Public Service Area
In line with the facilities offered by the topography, the municipal service buildings with two terraces over the terraced urban covering, which make up the main design backbone, both contain intensive function themes.
Short and effective circulations have been developed between the service buildings, which are horizontal and vertical.
