recent projects include

Euston HS2 Station, London

With the redevelopment and regeneration of this central London site, P+P led the masterplan design team that supported the successful bid by Lendlease. Asli has played an important role in developing the  masterplan for the  54-hectare site above and around the new station.

 

Smithfield Market, Birmingham

To regenerate the area formerly occupied by the city’s wholesale markets with a mixed-use development including retail, homes, restaurants and a public square, P+P is masterplan lead for current master developer competitor. Asli played an important role in developing the competition entry plan, and is now part of the team moving it forward.

 The Ashton Canal Corridor and Etihad Campus, Manchester

Accommodating Manchester’s growth eastwards, and as part of a wider regeneration of this area around the Etihad Stadium, this is a 2km long regeneration corridor for new homes, jobs and amenities. Asli played a key role in documenting and illustrating proposals for the commission.

Airport City (known as Istanbul New Airport), Istanbul

The masterplan for a major mixed-use urban development beside one of the largest airports in the world—the Istanbul New Airport, which is currently under construction. The 690-hectare development includes a central innovation district, hotels, retail and commercial office space, logistic centres, an expo and convention centre, public space, and metro and high-speed rail connections to Istanbul.

Hammersmith+Fulham Gateway, London

A mixed-use redevelopment on the Hammersmith and Fulham College site with a close proximity to Hammersmith Town Centre Regeneration Area, includes an education quarter, residential and office spaces. Asli worked on the masterplan from the initial design to pre-planning application stages.

Bogacay Creekside Regeneration, London

The vision of the masterplan is to revitalise and restore the 58-square kilometre stretch of land along the Bogacay Creek basin, which is prone to both drought and flooding. The key moves include controlling water levels to preserve and protect the urban landscape—and creating recreational areas around the waterfront, including a mixed-use marina district and a centre for culture and entertainment. This promotes broader community connectivity and accessibility, allowing for continued economic growth.
