Santralistanbul is an international platform for art, culture and education. The campus houses a museum of contemporary art, a museum of energy, galleries, the educational establishments of the Istanbul Bilgi University, a library, a dormitory and several restaurants and cafés. Every day thousands of people visit this campus. Among them, the students represent the most significant number, which is closely followed by employees, lecturers and professors. The following diploma thesis attempts to address the key issue of accommodating the children of the corresponding group of people mentioned above, while they are at work on the campus. Consequently, the creation of an on-site childcare facility for the children of these employees and students seems to be an immediate necessity. Due to Istanbuls large urban area, commuting from home to workplace and vice versa is extremely time-consuming. Furthermore, in cases of emergency, parents will not be able to return home or even reach the nursery school located outside of the campus in a short period of time. Therefore, a child day-care centre close to the parents workplace would provide them both emotional and practical support. Its quiet location next to the water turns the campus into a suitable place for a kindergarten. Especially, the contrast between the densely built up area and the great open spaces of the campus is remarkable. Formerly, Santralistanbul used to be a coal-fired power plant. Even then, the children of these workers made life more vivid in this area. In those days, the life of todays campus used to be independent accompanied by little interaction with its surroundings. This way of life still continues up to the present time. Once you enter the campus, you immediately have that feeling of diving into another world - far away from all the chaos of Istanbul where you look for an escape from the dense population and the existing building developments. To conclude, Santralistanbuls great suitability for children with its abundance of green spaces for playing, exercising and relaxation cannot be denied. Moreover, the campus also gives these children the opportunity to interact with the students attending the university. As a result, the focus of this nursery school lies on its university nature.
