Located on Turkey’s Aegean coast, the bustling town of Izmir is known for its majestic seaside and port. As part of an ongoing urban regeneration plan, Steb / Studio Evren Başbuğ has created a gorgeous new footbridge and sunset lounge so that residents can enjoy an even better view.
The new Bostanlı Bridge, which crosses a creek by the same name, is a timber clad structure that doubles as a public park due to its unique seating. Its angled sides cleverly act as lounge chairs, making it the perfect spot to take in a romantic sunset or hang out with friends.
The adjacent Bostanlı Sunset Lounge complements the bridge. Wide seating areas in white ash unfurl toward the embankment with a clean, breezy aesthetic to mesh perfectly with the seaside ambiance. Functional and stylish, both spaces fulfill practical needs while not forgetting the value of leisure time.
