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.

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.

Jumeirah Maška Hotel

Jumeirah Maška 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 Maška 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 İpekši street to relatively calmer Maška 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 Maška Street. With an opening to Abdi İpekši 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 İpekši and Maška Streets. Urban fabric at Abdi İpekši 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 ôfoundö 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 ôexistingö. 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 ôfoundö.

Feeling of containment in urban space, constituted by the dÚbut-de-siŔcle 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 Maška 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 Maška Valley is exposed to Ĺnatureĺ ľsun 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 Maška Street becomes a ôliving facadeö, 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.

I'm sick of all these lame office and commercial solitary blocks and exchangeable phalli towers without a soul.


Please show some more lively and dense urban quarter projects that feature more typical Istanbul / Turkish architecture! Thanks.

Horrible, tasteless projects. And still no further dense, urban quarters reflecting Istanbul and its character! Is Istanbul a hopeless case already?

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 fašade 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. Fašade colour adds interest and expression, whilst external illumination emphasises the building's composition at night.
