The project land is located in Ankaras most important trade and prestige axis developing to the west. Referred to as the Eskisehir road, the axis has quickly become one of Ankaras commercial centers, starting from the city center, and merging with office towers, city hospitals, new ministry buildings, and shopping malls.
Redesignated with the effects of military airports in the surrounding region, the handicap limit has decreased to about 60m. Nevertheless, the equivalence value is great. In addition to these two inputs forcing each other, it is also one of the limits of the design that the parcel is located in such a way that its front facade facing Eskisehir road is rather narrow.

The building is considered as a permeable space on the ground floor. Designed as semi sheltered to cover the town-dwellers coming to the area via the subway station just in front or other public transports on the Eskisehir road, and willing to transfer to the North road, the ground floor will host upscale restaurants and cafés. Designed as closed in the first basement and with escalators to ensure direct access to the shops constructed to be in the 1st floor, the trade area constitutes the basis for the office and residential blocks. Located in the front facade of the project, the hotel project supports other functions as a stand-alone block.
The language of the façade of the buildings is designed both to express itself as parts of a whole structure, and to decompose in accordance with its own functions.
