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.
This stunning footbridge in Izmir pulls double duty as a romantic place to lounge and watch the sunset.
