The Bostanlı Footbridge and Sunset Lounge is part of the ‘Karşıkıyı’ concept, created for the wider ‘İzmirSea’ coastal regeneration project. The project had to complete one of the missing pieces of the continuous local coastal promenade. With its slightly bow shaped longitudinal-section and specially designed girder geometry, the bridge allows the passage of small boats underneath and provides access to the floating pontoon located in the creek. This new urban structure, oriented according to its unique position which provides a view of the bay on one side and the city on the other, has an asymmetrical cross-section.
