Pictures: Intimate Istanbul courtyard

Designed by Turkish firm MuuM, Courtyard 138 is located in the Gültepe district of Istanbul, which is in the midst of urban regeneration.

Due to the constraints of client requirements and building regulations, the designers opted for two blocks with a courtyard in between.

The 7000m2 building includes 46 residential on the upper floors, with commercial units at ground level.

The intimate courtyard between the blocks is a social space for the small community, with plantation planned to cover the walls of the building.
