NEF Offices Levent 03

NEF Offices Levent 03
Istanbul, Turkey

http://www.nef.com.tr/eng/nef_offices_levent.php

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.

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.

Palladium Tower

Palladium Tower
Istanbul, Turkey

HEIGHT: 180 m
FLOORS: 43 fl
ARCHITECT: SHCA
HOMEPAGE: http://www.palladiumtower.com/

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.

Renaissance Business Center

Renaissance Business Center
Istanbul, Turkey

HEIGHT: 185 m
FLOORS: 38 fl

Renaissance Tower is located on the Asian side of Istanbul at the intersection of the two major highways that connect the continents. Due to efforts coordinated by the government, the Atasehir area is emerging into a financial center with all necessary infrastructures, as well as residential, retail and varied amenities to support a new world-class commercial development. At the center of this new prime location is the Renaissance Tower.

A fusion of cultural response and sustainable concerns guided the design. Renaissance Tower’s chiseled massing takes cues from Ottoman geometric motifs and draws inspiration from surrounding local landforms. The tower rises from its base and meets the sky gracefully to redefine Istanbul’s skyline, and become a new symbol of the city.

The tower is rotated 33 degrees for optimum solar control as determined through insolation modeling. A stippled golden scrim, tuned to the solar orientation, further reduces heat load. Together, these enable the incorporation of floor-to-ceiling glass while simultaneously achieving ambitious energy efficiency goals. A marriage of performance and ornament, this second skin coveys the spirit and aura of “The East”.

The tower features a four-sided structural glazed unitized glass curtain wall with full-depth shadow boxes, cantilevered metal scrim that provides intermittent shading on three elevations, double height sky gardens with structural glass spanning members, and a hybrid glass wall at the podium. The design is environmentally-friendly, using technologies such as floor-to-ceiling insulating glass to contain heat and maximize natural light, and an automatic daylight dimming system. Facets of the curtain wall to the east, south, and west have been designed with a perforated sunscreen panels as part of a sustainable strategy.

The unique asymmetric shape also gives the building a different appearance from every angle. Environmental emphasis is evident in green spaces laced through the tower. Three groupings of “sky-gardens” are strategically placed at key exposures. These two-story high gardens provide access to fresh air, a thermal buffer between the interior and exterior, and a respite for office workers. A larger exterior garden crowns the tower with a weave of planting and architectural elements. The base of the building is outfitted with varied features: a water garden reflects the tower and sky and a piazza provides a social focus. Taken together, these green spaces temper the insistent vertical stacking and hermetic environments often found in high-rise design.

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.

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

Ozdilek Plaza
Istanbul, Turkey

HEIGHT: -
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.
