It's not a masterpiece but it turned out MUCH better than I expected.

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.

Garantibank Pendik Technology Center

Garantibank Pendik Technology Center

http://openbuildings.com/buildings/g...profile-40536#

GarantiBank Pendik Technology Campus is located in Istanbul, Pendik where the Shipyard Junction of the D-100 road and E-80 Highway connection road to Sabiha Gökçen International Airport intersect. The site was formerly occupied by a chemical factory. The whole district is now turning into a service and commercial zone. The program of the project is constituted by three main parts: 53.500 sqm open office space and specialized functions, 16.000 sqm common areas such as auditorium, cafeteria, and 72.500 sqm service areas such as car park & archives, 142.000 sqm in total. The main concept of the project is to accommodate all office spaces together on an elevated block creating a strong image of technology, aiming to provide maximum flexibility for the working areas. Since all the other functions are located on ground and underground levels, office spaces are arranged continuously at the top, connected with bridges allowing to create elevated courtyards opening up to the landscape and to the sky. The design of the office block will highlight a transparent simplicity contrasting against the chaotic look of surrounding neighbourhood. The office bar sits over a new landscape created by hills on the ground level which accommodates all common areas and open spaces for recreation and open-air circulation areas. The sustainability is one of the project’s design criterias: Site development, effective use of water (re-use of rain water,etc) and energy to enhance the environmental quality etc. are some of the significant issues considered as part of the design. The building is underconstruction and aiming to receive Leed Gold certificate.

Anadolu Plaza

FLOORS: 30 fl
ARCHITECT: Kreatif Mimarlik
LOCATION: http://goo.gl/maps/AtqL8

To set the location of the Office tower, such conditions are considered as the perception of the mass from E-5 highroad and periphery; ground floor organization and shadow-light values. While considering the location, an open space is created on the ground level which is isolated from the negative conditions of E-5, extroverted on the other side and featuring commercial spaces on the peripheries of the site. Office spaces that can be individually organized, are attached to an iconic prism (the core) on the design of the tower. This dynamic mass gives the office building both functional and aesthetic values.

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.
