Using a modular wooden construction technique, necessary volumes are created by rotating a simple initial module. Repetition and combination of the same module in various rotations allows creating the structure of interior and exterior volumes, façades and the roof. The rotation creates inclined surfaces for the roof to increase climate resilience, angled balconies in the upper floors to give visual connections to city life and a welcoming entrance in the ground floor facade in order to strengthen the relationship between the building and the main street in ground level. Besides environmental sustainability, these relations are created to host “meaningful involvement” of people to the offered building programs and city life and enhance human relations in the society to achieve social sustainability. 
Changing city conditions of Kızılay requires the city center to host less accommodation spaces and more offices and cultural spaces day by day. Three distinct scenarios are offered for the suggested structure’s life cycle in a time range. Altering transformations of the building space and its function are repsented as solutions to rapidly changing spatial needs of Kızılay. These solutions include a functional diversity in order to create a heterogenity of functional usage which will lead to a sustainable city life that meets various needs of the habitants.
