Maslak No:1 Commercial Center

Maslak No:1 Commercial Center
Istanbul, Turkey


http://maslakno1.com/eng/default.asp

HEIGHT: 112 m
FLOORS: 28 floors
COMPLETION: -
ARCHITECT: Emre Arolat

The project prepared for the office building that is to be situated on the Mecidiyeköy-Maslak axis, near the Istinye junction, where Turkey’s foreign capital takes its most visible form, was conditioned by the tension that came out of the density of its environs, and the tight space allocated. It was the clients' wish that the construction would be a prestigious building, just like all the other surrounding structures which meant to be prominent, but instead give the impression of having been developed with no certain rule, plan or order.

Apart from the other projects along the Büyükdere Avenue, which is the main business district of Istanbul, Maslak No.1 Office Tower was designed to enrich the quality of the typical office space by vertical gardens. In order to accomplish that, a rational office block which was planned over a rational 8.25 x 8.25 m grid, enveloped with a free formed glazing system. The envelope, acting as a secondary facade in south and west directions, is detached from the building up to 17 meters wide letting vertical gardens in 20 meters high. The space in-between two facades was considered as a buffer both for the acoustical and the climatic sense.

The curvilinear plan of the facade formed by the 150x200 cm rectangular modules was designed regarding the perception from the highway. The facade was considered as a silicon glazing system having a translucent film layer over it. The opacity of the film layer diverse, up to the orientation of the curvilinear facade; on southern façade a less transparent pattern was chosen; however in north, almost a transparent film was used.

Torun Tower

Torun Tower
Istanbul, Turkey

HEIGHT: 190 m
FLOORS: 44 fl

We are planning for Torun Tower to be a mixed-use development with residential, office and retail space. It will consist of one high rise tower with 40 floors with a total construction area of 91,263 sqm. The building is planned to be a landmark for the city of Istanbul, which will have prominent visibility from both the Bosphorus and northern districts of Istanbul. Torun Tower will be constructed using very modern architectural concepts and construction technology. The concept design for Torun Tower was initiated with BRT Architects in 2006 and in 2009 we began working with Arquitectonica Design Company to further improve the design to increase the GLA efficiency of the project. We expect to develop 55% of the total leasable/saleable area of Torun Tower into residential units, 40% into office units and 5% into retail units. The lower floors are expected to be Class A offices with small upscale residential units (1+1 and 1+1.5) on higher floors. We expect that sales and rents of Torun Tower units will be denominated in US dollars. We own 100% of the land on which the building will be constructed.

Varyap Meridian
Istanbul, Turkey


http://www.varyapmeridian.com/

ARCHITECT: RMJM

RMJM designs first ‘green’ development in Turkey’s financial district

RMJM has today unveiled details of the US $1 billion development it is designing in Istanbul’s new residential and business district, which will be one of the ‘greenest’ projects in Turkey.

The luxury 372,000 sq m development – being designed by RMJM’s New York and Istanbul studios - will be located in the Atasehir district of Istanbul which the Turkish government intends to transform into the country’s new financial district and business centre.

Set on a highly visible site (totalling 107,000 sq m) that features panoramic views stretching from the Bosphorus Strait in the west to the Princes’ Islands and the Sea of Marmara to the south, the development has been commissioned by Turkish real estate development company VARYAP, part of Varlibas Group International. It includes a 60-storey tower, 1,500 residential units, a five-star hotel, offices and conference facilities with landscaped public areas and parking facilities. The project, which is expected to serve 20,000 people, is scheduled to be completed in 2011.

The RMJM design team intends to create an iconic complex that is designed to achieve the ‘LEED’ sustainability accreditation from the U.S. Green Building Council and, as such, would be the first mixed use development of its kind in Turkey. To achieve this the designers analysed the local site conditions and embraced the topography, climate and surrounding context to maximise the site’s natural potential and inform building orientation and landscaping. This also ensured panoramic views beyond the site, while minimising solar heat gain to the building facades.

Active ‘green’ design features include rainwater collection sites and facilities to optimise water usage and reduce energy consumption, wind turbine technology, cooling water pools that enhance the external landscape and a co-generation plant that will produce electricity for the development. The unique context and culture of Istanbul is incorporated into the design including a spectral tiled facade, ranging from terracotta to blue to white.

“We’re thrilled to have this opportunity to create a landmark community in Istanbul’s up-and-coming financial district,” said Chris Jones, RMJM Design Principal who leads RMJM’s new Istanbul office. “RMJM’s design not only addresses Istanbul’s culture, climate, architectural heritage and cosmopolitan attitude but also sets a new standard for sustainable design for Turkey. Sustainable design is no longer a trend but a necessity and our client VARYAP embraced the idea from the start.”

Jumeirah Maçka Hotel

Jumeirah Maçka Hotel
Istanbul, Turkey

ARCHITECT: Emre Arolat



Formation of the urban fabric in Nişantaşı-Teşvikiye district shares similar motivations with European cities that were developed at the same period. In the beginning of 20th century, the urban movements towards cities resulted in the need for high quality urban residences for the urban bourgeoisie. In Nişantaşı-Teşvikiye district, an urban fabric constituted of adjacent buildings which are up to 7-8 storey high created a modern urban space characterized by the notions of density and continuity. This fabric can be conceptualized as a structure that reigns whole district which has an architectural quality, created through the principles of proportion and order. The neighbourhood today, owned by the upper-middle class İstanbul elite, produces urban spaces which are also favored by city habitants of wide social backgrounds.

The plot in which Maçka Hotel will be built, is one of the plots which constitutes this structure. The new building infills its plot and sustains principle of density and continuity. The mass of the building follows Neo-classical/Renaissance order of base-body-coronet which characterizes the existing urban fabric. The building adapts itself to daily uses: the base exposes itself to the ground level, accompanying the life on the street. It creates metasthasis of retail activity from Abdi İpekçi street to relatively calmer Maçka Street. The rooms in the body of the building are exposed to three different sides that circumscribe the plot. The coronet settles on the roof with a set back from the facade and the articulation of mass is completed.

The main entrance of lobby faces Maçka Street. With an opening to Abdi İpekçi Street on the upper level, the lobby creates a passage between two streets. Articulating the lobby space to the daily life of Nişantaşı, this semi-restricted urban shortcut produces a restricted-public space of impermanent encounters between hotel visitors and domestic-upper-middle-class.

The facade articulation of the building is affected by the contrast between Abdi İpekçi and Maçka Streets. Urban fabric at Abdi İpekçi side stands for the structure which the new building is mimetically dependant on. However, when it comes to facade, the mimetic behaviour diminishes and a strong manner of mediaton takes charge. Having spent adequate time with the “found” one, a kind of deep empathy grows, our existence becomes open to its affections. Only way of existance beside it is just when we can start being ourselves again. Vertical proportions of the openings on facade is the most dominant character in visual memory. Parts of facade occupied by each room is divided into three vertical parts, forming a vertically stretched and deepened grid to inherit the massive impact of the the “existing”. The fragments are widened where the room behind gets larger. By this way, the grid becomes heterogeneous. This facade is not an abstraction of the existing urban facade. It is rather an inner dialogue triggered by the tension between new and “found”.

Feeling of containment in urban space, constituted by the début-de-siècle buildings that holds two sides of Abdi İpekci Street, melts into air when you turn the corner and feel the blowing of the wind coming through the Maçka Park. The never-ending rhytms of the building faces, the elegant proportions, which gives world its order, has gone, instead the primordial veird void in which the green valley has been created, starts to magnetize you. This park is a small bit of the huge urban park project of Prost that managed to survive today.

The facade of the hotel that faces Maçka Valley is exposed to ‘nature’ –sun and wind- as well as the Istanbul scene which has been naturalised with the distance brought by the green gap in-between. It builds a perforated screen to protect itself from the south-east sun. The screen is fragmented into smaller louvres to let the visitors manipulate the screen. Thus, facade of Maçka Street becomes a “living facade”, a changing composition due to time of day, weather and user preferences. These louvres resemble the louvres in late Ottoman mansion along Bosphorus, which are opened and closed each and every day, like a part of a daily ritual. The pattern of screen is an exact replica of famous fences at Galata Bridge.

The corner facing south is opened to Bosphorus view. Balconies surrounding the corner acts as a canopy for the storey below, protecting inner facade from the direct sunlight. The corner exists as a third species between two different facade.

Facade of the building displays three different characters affected by the differantiaon of urban spaces surrounding the plot. Rooms placed inside the body of building, are mediated through this facade. Unlike the debut-de-siecle apartments where every part of facade references to one particular order, Macka Hotel unveils milder face of contemporary architecture which tends adaptation more easily.

Nida Palladium Tower

Nida Palladium Tower
Istanbul, Turkey

http://www.palladiumtower.com/

HEIGHT: -
FLOORS: 46 fl
ARCHITECT: SHCA


With direct access from the Bosphorus Bridge and on the cross roads of the E5 and TEM highways in the Kozyatagi business district of Istanbul, the 1.7 hectare site makes a highly visible location for the new Palladium Tower. The building provides 49,500 sq m of efficiently planned flexible Grade A office space around a central core, offering floor plates of between 900 and 1,100 sq m suitable for single or multiple tenancies. The design includes naturally ventilated landscaped atria at each level for the benefit of the office occupiers.

A double height Reception Lobby to the office tower is approached from a landscaped drop off area and connects to meeting rooms, fitness, sauna, spa and cafeteria areas - all interior designed by SHCA. Parking for 838 cars is provided below ground.

The external façade has been designed to maximise daylight into the office spaces, whilst maintaining a high degree of thermal insulation. Coloured glass spandrel panels have been oriented horizontally at high levels to provide uninterrupted panoramic views of the Bosphorus sea. The tower has been split by the landscaped atria zones into a composition of elegant stacked forms, working with orthogonal geometry to ensure floor plate efficiency and overall building economy. Façade colour adds interest and expression, whilst external illumination emphasises the building's composition at night.

A Global Project rising tall and proud in one of the world’s most unique metropolitan cities...

Each new step taken, each new milestone set in a city that has hosted countless civilizations has to be worthy of its heritage. A city that has witnessed the rise and fall of ages, is about to inaugurate a project for the new millennia; Metropol Istanbul.

An innovative concept rising in Ataşehir, a district poised to become one of the world’s leading financial hubs upon the successful completion of the Financial Centre.

Launching what will be one of the tallest towers in Europe, bringing a fresh new concept to the coupling of residential and office buildings whilst also offering a prestigious shopping mall, a 400 meter long retail street and a large recreational complex, Metropol Istanbul will truly be a worthy homage to this vibrant city.

An exciting design that evokes architectural admiration...

A story being shaped by the finest; the internationally renowned RMJM at the helm of the conceptual design along with HYDER lending superior engineering knowledge, Metropol Istanbul is destined to be a great success.

TURKEY AND ISTANBUL
Istanbul, which will soon be the heart of the global finance market with its new Financial Centre, is where attention is fixed upon and Metropol Istanbul will definitely be a fitting ambassador to this great city, conveying a powerful message...

A brand new life in a startlingly beautiful city
