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.

CVK Park Hotel & Residence

CVK Park Hotel & Residence

http://www.turgutalton.com/yapilar.p...f=list&lang=en

The main concern in the design was redesigning the existing huge building, remaining in the city silhouette for tens of years as a dark ruin, without tearing it down, to properly suit its environment and the city silhouette. Architectural references, details and proportions of the surrounding is used as basis and the façade of more than 200m length is treated as if it consists of various different buildings, built at different times. Partial extensions to the structure and partial demolitions are designed, to break the continuity of the façade line in plan and in elevation. A Street is planned at the fourth basement level in between the blocks, to suit the local requirements and to create access to the residences in the lower block and to the public facilities in the hotel such as ball room, meeting rooms and health Spa. TAM prepared the interior design, too, but at a later stage the Client preferred to change his interior design concept and the designer.

Şan City

Şan City
Istanbul, Turkey

Source


LOCATION:
The site is situated on the previous location of the famous San theatre, which has now disappeared; at the heart of the centre of Istanbul, nearby Taksim, Harbiye and Nisantasi, which are the main prestigious retail areas of the city.

DESCRIPTION:
The project is conceived as an innovative mixed complex with retail, cultural, hotel and office functions.
This development distinguishes itself from other mixed complexes by its specific theme dedicated to fashion and developed in partnership with renowned brands , by its organic, fully modular architecture, that can be adapted to the evolving needs defined by brands. Further typical features of the project are embodied by the presence of a public cultural function (new theatre), the creation of event areas, restaurants and a spa with a rooftop swimming pool surrounded by gardens and offering a panoramic view on Istanbul.
The altitude difference characterising the site allows for the creation of three half buried levels of retail areas and of 6 underground parking levels with room for more than 1600 vehicles.

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.
