Context of Contemporary Istanbul
The Istanbul neighbourhood of Bomonti, in the Şişli region, is named after the first Ottoman beer production workshop, which was founded in the early 20th century by Swiss brothers Walter and Adolf Bomonti. Today, the neighbourhood is being regenerated in line with the cosmopolitan direction of modern Istanbul, attracting a socially and culturally active population of young people. The Bomonti neighbourhood offers peaceful tree-lined streets and green space with a wide variety of transportation options and efficient connections to greater Istanbul. The Now Bomonti project draws on this, bringing together both living and working uses into one innovative building concept.
