The Archetype project holds different measurements than the other three projects designed at the same time in the area of Göktürk. Among the factors which affected the massive development and settlement of the project are; the few number of floors which the surrounding buildings held, the proximity to the forest at the southern end, the requirement to utilize areas underneath the roof, and the owner's wishes regarding flat dimensions. Other influences on the design consist of tensions between private vs. public spaces, pedestrian vs. vehicular areas, the performance over time of main building and landscape materials, as well as the optimization of the general expenses during the time of usage. A linear plan, composed of a shared main entry, service and wet areas inside flats, hallways, main areas, and terraces, is placed on a regular structure,and is repeated at each different flat type, making maximum use of natural light.
