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.

Ziraat Bank Tower

Ziraat Bank Tower
Istanbul, Turkey

FLOORS: 31 fl
HEIGHT: 153 m
ARCHITECT: -


Multi-storey high-rise office tower is located at the financial district of Istanbul housing alternative office units of Ziraat Bank of Turkey (state-owned agriculture bank), to be their symbolic structure first time in Istanbul. The building consist of a 153 meter major office tower with 31 office floors linked to the ground-scraper with 4 floors, relevant to the geometrical contours of the long-thin property. Being the back wing at street level and above, the low-rise intersects the high rise with double height atrium and communal meeting areas. The low rise wing also houses other social functions such as small shopping facilities, day-care center, gym and cafes. The dynamic architectural manner in the main structure, with reference the logo of the bank; also gives form to the uniquely situated stories and compartments that punctuate the individuality of the units which are basically programmed around an atrium that becomes the shared area of the department. With different zone plans, the atriums are double or three-storey height; there are also choices of single floors. In the tower, green zones, designed as small courtyards in the atriums, provide a warm, natural and authentic atmosphere at the upper levels where people meet besides their offices. In the tower, the composite structure of steel and concrete is enveloped with sheer glass, benefiting the daylight and panoramas at optimum while smoothly joining the cityscape. Contrary to the glass use on the façade of the tower, massive surface of the ground scraper receives daylight through recurrent openings. Chapters in altering forms, located at various levels and directions of the building, open to different vistas, so that every single space has its genuine position in the building scenario. Due to angled façades and forms, the building gives distinct impressions at different perspectives.

FLOORS: 38 fl / 37 fl
COMPLETION: -
ARCHITECT: B&H

Click here for the Video!

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.

Newada

Newada
Istanbul, Turkey

http://www.newada.com.tr/

HEIGHT: 104 m
FLOORS: 32 fl / 21 fl
ARCHITECT: GAD Architecture
VIDEO: http://vimeo.com/18746711#

Newada is a high-rise luxury residential project, located on the Anatolian side of Istanbul. Although the European side of Istanbul is better known as the business center of Istanbul, the Anatolian side still contains the largest amount of housing. Maltepe is located approximately in the center of the Anatolian part of Istanbul, near the Marmara Sea coastline with spectacular views awaiting the future residents.

Capturing views of the Princess Islands is a major ambition for the project. The 800m long southern border of the site faces the Marmara Sea and is not obstructed by many building, so this affords a unique opportunity to see the Princess Islands.

A building proposal focusing on a modern lifestyle in Istanbul can not be thought of without considering issues of traffic and car circulation. The project site contains a great opportunity in terms of its proximity to several major road connections, including the E5 which allows for ease of access to many coastal areas. This advantage would alleviate most of the traffic issues for the residents.

Original design studies concentrated on solar studies aimed at limiting the shadows of the towers cast on neighboring buildings. In order to achieve this, an adaptive sky exposure plane simulation was prepared with the aid of a grasshopper plug-in for rhinoceros software. Using sliders and coordinate marking boards, the artificial sky exposure plane was simultaneously used to reshape the building to maximize the buildings allocation, and to minimize shadows.

Therefore, the buildings are optimized to obtain the maximum view of the Princess Islands while also obtaining the most sunlight. The balconies surrounding the buildings are located between a semi-open stone facade and a glass inner facade. This provides a cooling effect in the summer and a heat-trapping effect in the winter.

The project contains two blocks on a shared base. The ground level contains shops, including boutiques, dry cleaning, barbers, and residential services accessible to the residents. The project site is partitioned into two zones, by taking advantage of level differences on the site. While the bottom level is used for the main entrance and public spaces, the upper level is used for private gardening and reflecting pools. Ground and basement levels are connected by an active courtyard and stairs, and lobbies have openings into this courtyard. Protection from the elements is provided by a glass & steel structure above.

The site area is 11,872 m², and the total construction area is approximately 50.000m².

Few materials are used in order to provide unity on the site and in the overall detailing. There are four primary materials: stone, concrete, glass and steel. The stone cladding is the main material giving the project its unique charecter.

Quasar İstanbul

Quasar İstanbul

HEIGHT: -
FLOORS: 2 x 43 fl & 39 fl

There are some buildings, which have important places in the memory of the cities they are located in. Ali Sami Yen Stadium took place over in Mecidiyeköy which is one of the busiest districts of Istanbul for a period of half a century with all its magnitude. The stadium perceived as a large mass when it is compared to its environment although the surrounding building pattern continuously developed and increased its intensity. This building which was identifying with Galatasaray Sport Club in recent years took an important place in the social memory of the city as well as its physical memory. The structural life of the Mecidiyeköy Ali Sami Yen Stadium has been completed with the recent football match at the beginning of 2011.


The realities such as density, size and complexity emerged as important design criteria in the design process of the complex which will be built on the area of the stadium. It is obvious that this mixed-use building complex which has approximately 250 thousand square meters of indoor space with the service areas under the ground floor will be one of the biggest new projects of the city. The issues such as the building complex’s positioning strategy on the land, occupied floor area of the masses, the tension between the public, semi-public and private areas were considered at the first phase as the prioritized design problems. Noisy urban fabric generated by Büyükdere Street traversing across the north edge of the land and the E5 highway viaduct placed on it, scenery opportunities that appears at the south direction of the land which was based on one of the highest places of Istanbul and heavy traffic jam makes its presence felt nearby even today, were found as important features regarded at this stage.


In the context of the relationship to be established with the project which is being developed on the adjacent land on East direction and this design, massive and social continuities of the Liqueur Factory which is based on the adjacent land and which will be renewed and added to the city’s cultural life and the large green area located in front of it and the stadium which stands empty as an old and alone giant during a very important part of the year, but transforms into a kind of fairground with its near environment during the football matches, were examined as determinants of the design. As one of the most important decisions related to the general settlement strategy, it was proposed that approximately ten thousand square meters area on the northern part of the land to turn into a city park by integrating with the existing green area on the adjacent parcel and designed large public space came into existence by this way to generate a kind of breathing zone between dense urban blocks of Mecidiyeköy. To enhance the perception of integrity of both fields, it was aimed that significant landscape features of existing adjacent green space which get its strength from a very specific geometric arrangement to continue in the areas close to the neighboring parcel, in spite of this, the pattern that emerges as a dense green texture to give place to a more urban platform by rarefying in the West direction. In this context, the hidden square formed at the west corner of the land has been designed as a public space which is reached by large steps going down from Büyükdere Street and which enriches by surrounding commercial spaces which are mainly food & beverage. Again at this level, increasing the public’s potential in this direction by means of a planted slit that traverses across the western edge of the complex and semi-open usage areas that came into existence became the priorities. Therefore, the tension between the silence of the upper platform completed with the green pattern which was protected in a sense by raising two meters above the road and the dynamic nature of the secret square placed at the lower level from the road in order to create its own context emerged as a critical element of this project. It was aimed that a museum that will be designed related to the phenomena of Ali Sami Yen Stadium takes place as one of the spaces which opens to this square, by this way a kind of social memory vessel continues its existence in this project even if it is capillary.


The lower levels of the south side of public platform were arranged as ‘green offices’. These offices which provide unique opportunities to use by opening to inner gardens that equipped with a rich landscape possibilities, were proposed to be used on the same level with these gardens as much as possible. It was aimed to link the offices in a controlled manner with the social and recreative spaces that are at the same level and to provoke the new generation office use with a modular space fluidity.


One of the three high-rise blocks which were placed at the southern part of the land was arranged as office, as well as the other two were designed as residential towers. The massive installation of these buildings comes into existence with the pieces composed of the facades which were oriented according to different viewpoints. This situation that will be reviewed as a kind of ‘tropism’ interpretation like the orientation of the plants to the sun, enables all the façades of the buildings to be oriented to the angles of panorama as well as the building mass to be lightened by fragmantation.
