Zorlu Plaza

Zorlu Plaza
Istanbul, Turkey

HEIGHT: 170m
FLOORS: 42 floors
CONSTRUCTION START: 2010
ARCHITECT: Tabanlioglu Architects

www.tabanlioglu.com.tr

Thus multi-storey, high-rise office tower is located in the financial district of Istanbul, housing several of the world’s top financial institutions and other service sector leaders.

The complex consists of a 196-metre, major office tower with 47 office floors and garden; offices at floors 2 to 4 being the back wing at street level and below grade, relevant to the contours and backward sloping of the property.

The positioning of the masses naturally introduces 3 interior courts by uplifting the low-rise section and due to the elevation difference of the land. The terraced slope is encircled by garden-offices which have visual access both to the street and the patios.

The form of the tower with two telescoped blocks maximises the amount of perimeter; the structure gives a more fragile impression then one thick standard block and gains more rooms with a view that is supported by glass use on the façade where convenient, not having a massive surface.

Indentations in geometric forms differentiate the four communal areas separating 5 different office zones; there are meeting rooms, maintenance facilities and interior gardens at each notch born out of the intersection of the two blocks. Fritted glass applied at the office levels for sun control also designates the office zones, whereas sheer glass is used at the common areas. Each buffer zone is composed of 2 storeys and a mezzanine. Beside its transparency, the movement on the façade refers to interior functions that make the building genuine and legible from afar. Due to angled façades and forms, the building gives distinct impressions at different perspectives.

Compartments of the low-rise, like the tail of the office block, comprise a zig-zag shaped long main block and 3 smaller blocks connected to each other via bridges. Their irregular forms punctuate the vivid movement of the ground in horizontal term. The roof of these units is designed as green landscape areas. The structural diversity reflects on the positioning of the social areas, like cafes and inner gardens, in the patios sheltered by the pendent console above them. Green zones at courtyards provide a warm, natural and authentic atmosphere at the lower levels and create a view for the high-rise above. Being the main entrance, the transparent entrance box is formed on Büyükdere Street, as the prolongation of the low-rise behind the tower.

A contribution to the developing architectural vocabulary of the Boulevard, ultimately the iconic skyscraper is a powerful yet modest statement of corporate power.

Soyak Plaza

Soyak Plaza
Istanbul, Turkey


HEIGHT: 160 m
FLOORS: 35 floors
COMPLETION: 2012
ARCHITECT: Pei Cobb Freed & Partners

Preparation work is underway for a new project to be located in the Turkish city of Istanbul. The project is being built to be the new headquarters for the Soyak Corporation and will be named the Soyak Plaza with its main centre-piece, a 160 metre tower.

The tower is the work of New York based architects Pei Cobb Freed and Partners. When viewed from the front rises from a square shaped base with an off set podium section, and as it rises it tapers inwards into an almost pyramid like shape before tapering backwards to its peak with asymmetric, sheer facades.

The facades will be fully glazed in two toned glazing which runs in horizontal bands around the tower. The eight storey podium section is partially sunk underground with the above surface portion glazed the same as the tower, this will feature open courtyards. In contrast the top of the tower will feature a 28 metre tall enclosed roof garden which will offer a relaxing place to hang out and give great views of the city below.

With recent seismic events in mind the company insisted the tower be capable of being operational after a major event, the design team employed a technique known as Performance Based Design to enable the tower to withstand a major quake, take an amount of damage in limited, defined zones but still allow for continued occupancy after the event with minimal fuss.

This technique is commonly used on regular buildings but applying the principles to a building with the geometric complexities involved in this tower is somewhat unusual.

The tower will house premium office space along with internal courtyards and winter gardens, the below ground portion will house parking spaces.

Work on the tower is expected to be completed by 2012.

The architectural adviser for this project is the world-famous HOK architectural group which, since 1955, has received many awards for the projects it has carried out and which was, furthermore, the designer behind London’s new Wembley Stadium. Nef Levent Offices 03 is under construction right next to İstanbul’s business centre, the Kanyon Shopping Mall, in Levent. The building’s modern design is completed with traditional Anatolian architectural features and its external façade is being worked on by an international sculpture artist. Our architects, which come from five of the most globally-respected architectural offices; SOM, RMJM, Fx Fowle, Audrey Matlock and HOK, as well as our country’s premier architectural groups, were selected through an international competition. Construction on the project is currently ongoing.

İstanbul Museum of Contemporary Art

İstanbul Museum of Contemporary Art

ARCHITECT: Emre Arolat

Transformation of an existing antrepot building into a contemporary art museum is a progressive step for going public of the customs port area in Karaköy which has been a segregated area in the heart of İstanbul with no public access since its construction in 1960. The museum is planned to house 15.000 art pieces including the most important examples of Turkish painting since late Ottoman to modern period.


Besides its being “a constructive element for modern Turkish architecture” for Sedad Hakki Eldem (a renowned Turkish architect who also is the designer of the building), the structural grid exposed outside the facade has been the most prominent element of the antrepot buildings in urban memory. When transforming the antrepot building into a museum, the reinforced concrete structure is kept as it is, while the walls and slabs are removed in order to obtain a 3D, naked structural grid which will house the ‘containers’ of the new museum. Directed by a curatorial approach, the art objects are to be categorised and collected inside these containers. Overhanging outside the grid in a lively manner, the containers are linked with a network of ramps and bridges. Visitors are going to circulate on this route, having glimpses on the Istanbul view provided by the transparent facade outside the structure.


Visitors enter the museum through a spacious hall enhanced with commercial units, workshop rooms and public facilities. Media-mesh on the back wall of the museum rejuvenates the facade facing the busy road, acting as an interface between the new museum and the city.

Le Meridien İstanbul Etiler

Le Meridien İstanbul Etiler
Istanbul, Turkey

FLOORS: 30 floors
COMPLETION: 05.10.2010



Istanbuls Segemented Garden Tower

Currently under construction is a new tower for the burgeoning Turkish city of Istanbul.

Currently named the Makyol Hotel Project it is located in the heart of the city and will offer expansive views of the river Bosphorus, the design for the tower comes from the drawing boards of architect Emre Arolat, whose work is somewhat prolific in Istanbul. When complete it will stand at 30 storeys, which works out to be approximately 110 metres in height.

Set on an L - Shaped concrete podium base the tower which stands on columns is square in shape and consists of three sections. One side effect of this is that it can be used highlight different uses within the tower.

The segmentation is achieved with the use of large open double height atria which cover two floors at separate heights of the tower. These not only look attractive but add to the residential amenity within the tower by providing relaxing open air spaces for people but also add to the towers green credentials with the feeling of hanging gardens.

Each section also has a different façade scheme, the first, lowest section features small, grid like window casements highlighted by white steel. The middle section is made up of slightly larger casements of irregular size that run in an irregular pattern horizontally again picked out by white steel. The final section features sleek, darkened glazing breaking from the patterns below and is finished with a flat peak featuring a roof garden.

When complete the tower will be home to a hotel with rooms and suites, office spaces, conference rooms, restaurant, bar, health club and a spa just in case anyone runs out of things to do or just wants to relax in somewhere other than the array of gardens.

All being well the tower is expected to be completed by October 2010.

Şan City

Şan City
Istanbul, Turkey

Source

The site is situated on the previous location of the famous San theatre, which has now disappeared; at the heart of the centre of Istanbul, nearby Taksim, Harbiye and Nisantasi, which are the main prestigious retail areas of the city.

The project is conceived as an innovative mixed complex with retail, cultural, hotel and office functions.

This development distinguishes itself from other mixed complexes by its specific theme dedicated to fashion and developed in partnership with renowned brands , by its organic, fully modular architecture, that can be adapted to the evolving needs defined by brands. Further typical features of the project are embodied by the presence of a public cultural function (new theatre), the creation of event areas, restaurants and a spa with a rooftop swimming pool surrounded by gardens and offering a panoramic view on Istanbul.

The altitude difference characterising the site allows for the creation of three half buried levels of retail areas and of 6 underground parking levels with room for more than 1600 vehicles.

Zorlu Center

Zorlu Center
Istanbul, Turkey

Homepage

Total land area: 102.000 m²
Total construction area: 615.885 m²
Greenspace: 120.000 m²
Jobs created for: 4000 people
Stores: 200 (approximate)
Restaurants: 15 (approximate)
Performance arts center capacity: 3.140 people
Residences: 600 (approximate)
Architect: Emre Arolat & Tabanlioglu


The starting points for the creation of Zorlu Center were the magnificent and celebrated public spaces that have symbolized İstanbul and the other great cities of the world throughout history. Shaped by a thoroughly modern approach to architecture, Zorlu Center will serve as a bridge at a place where the Asian and European continents join. With its paramount location at one of the finest spots overlooking the Bosphorus and by virtue of the importance given to green infrastructure ( 75,220 m² of greenspace and 120,000 m² of recreational areas and gardens), Zorlu Center is well on its way to becoming an “international center of attraction”.

The Zorlu Center project simultaneously incorporates five separate but fully integrated functions. The 50,000 m² / 3,140-person capacity performance arts center which is planned for the complex will be a masterpiece in its own right. There will be an international-class hotel that will make a valuable and prestigious addition to İstanbul’s tourism industry and a shopping mall bringing together hundreds of world-famous brands and elite restaurants offering different options for different tastes. Both the Tower Residences with their breathtaking views and the Terrace Houses each with its own private garden and terrace have been specially designed to provide their occupants with all of the privileges of convenient access to a modern urban center combined with the feeling that one is not really in the city at all.

The Zorlu Center project is informed by the goals of creating a work of art that people will still be talking about a century from now and to contribute towards making our country an international center of attraction.

Shangri-La Hotel Istanbul

Shangri-La Hotel Istanbul
Istanbul, Turkey

Shangri-La Hotel, Istanbul will be located between the Dolmabahce and the Maritime Museum on the European coast of the Bosphorus Straits, the 30-kilometer stretch of water separating Europe and Asia. Set within the Besiktas district, the shopping and transport hub of Istanbul, the hotel will be near the city’s financial district and the Istanbul Convention and Exhibition Centre. The neighborhood surrounding the hotel is home to many historical and cultural sites including: the Istanbul Concert Hall, the Ataturk Culture Centre, the newly restored Akaretler complex of neoclassical buildings, palaces from the Ottoman Empire period, and several theaters.

Built on the site of a former tobacco factory and warehouse from the 1930s, the Shangri-La Hotel, Istanbul will recreate the exterior facades of the old building, which are protected by the city’s Cultural and Natural Assets Committee. From the hotel’s prime coastline location, guests will enjoy views across to the Asian coast of Istanbul, the Bosphorus Bridge and the city’s historic peninsula. The hotel will be designed by Istanbul-based architect Piramit with 14 storeys, seven of which will be underground to protect the historic facade. The building will be the second tallest on the coast after the Dolmabahce Palace.

The hotel’s 200 guestrooms, some of which will have private terraces, will reflect the city’s proud heritage while also including the Asian design touches and modern travel technologies for which Shangri-La is well known. The hotel will offer several restaurants and bars including a rooftop restaurant with views of the city’s historic skyline and coastline. Additional facilities will include a health club, spa, swimming pool, business centre, ballroom, and conference and meeting room facilities.

Ozdilek Plaza

The location for this project called for a contemporary mixed-use complex to transform the constricted urban site into multi-layered development. Site geometry and the significant difference in levels between its eastern and western edge suggested the concept which was also inspired by the mountain river cascading between two hills. Two public plazas at opposite ends of the site are anchored by a 38-storey hotel/office tower and 37-storey condominium tower. A glazed skylit pedestrian circulation element meanders and bends like a river between the plazas, cascading down to a shopping area and effectively accommodating the difference in levels between the plazas.
