Arkvista is located in Caddebostan where was used as Istanbul’s summer residence neighbourhood. This neighbourhood has been transformed for years, and became today’s quiet residential appearance. Nowadays, Caddebostan and the district around are going through another transformation. This transformation aims to renovate buildings which are old and weak for earthquakes. In this context, Arkvista was designed to bring the traces of modern architecture into the district.

The global climate change leaves visible traces in the environment which sometimes emerge in the form of scars or devastation or simply represent the disappearance of something that has always been present. Humans struggle against this largely selfinflicted new world order and continuously try to slow this process down. The evershrinking glaciers in the high mountains are covered with awnings during summer and the regions which are endangered by sea flooding are equipped with new ramparts and sluices in order to protect the coast. Just as the tsunamis, the hurricanes transform the man-made environment in large stretches of land into a mishmash at one go, which makes it hard to guess what kind of function its components had to fulfill in the past. A new kind of aesthetics defined by chaos.

- Project: Wind Tower
- Location: UAE
- Software used: ArchiCAD, 3ds Max, Photoshop
- Inspiration: The concept “Wind Tower 2016” represents a kind of skyscraper which is shaped by tsunami and hurricane masses. A trapped cloud in its free form, pending in the air and only fixed by the core, still demonstrating its homogeneity (resonance) to the floating streams of air.
- Production/Realization Technology: 3D-sand printed facade patterns with integrated glass fronts, Carbon fiber reinforced polyamide for Down Wind Turbine casing. Wind Tower is situated on an artificial sand island with a road access from the mainland
- Specifications/ Technical Properties: 250m height
- TeamMembers (1): Peter Stasek Architect and Simon Wagner – 3D Visualization
- Tags: Peter Stasek, Wind Tower, Wind Tower 2016, matrixX architectures, matrixX architectrues by Peter Stasek,Simon Wagner,3D-square Wagner
- Research Abstract: How to create a building, which is shaped by tsunami and hurricane masses. A new kind of aesthetics generated by chaos.
- Challenge: A new order generated from chaos. As a new challenge, one could try to develop new urban structures and architectural forms which are not in contrast to but in conformity with the forces of nature which are able to further develop their potential of strength as a result of the global climate change.

The apartment, located inside a charming early 20th-century building, was completely redesigned in order to better respond to the occupants’ needs, without altering its « retro appeal ». The project therefore mixes a vintage decor with contemporary furniture and 20th century design pieces. The kitchen furniture and the cupboards were custom-designed. The beautiful original windows and wooden floor were kept and restored; in the bathrooms and in the kitchen, instead, the floor and wall tiles, which had been previusly replaced, were changed. In the living room, the elaborated coffered ceiling was restored and repainted; the walls were painted dark green, a strong color which enhances the original decoration and the character of this room.
