Esenler is one of the most densely populated districts of Istanbul. 38% of this densely populated population is under 20 years old. The outdoor space and sports infrastructure are not sufficient to meet the sports needs of young people.
Esenler Hakkı Başar Indoor Sports Hall is a great opportunity to address this need. The center is designed to use the space in the most efficient way and to integrate with its surroundings.
The project area is surrounded by schools of different age groups. One of the motivations of the project is to establish a relationship with the existing school gardens with the terraces designed in the sloping terrain and to make the whole area as a working youth district.
The usual sports center program is rewritten. Since the land is one of the last public areas in the Esenler region to meet the social needs, programs such as nursery, health center, sports studios, pool, bowling and youth center are added to sports programs.
