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.

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.

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.

Ataşehir Financial Center

Ataşehir Financial Center
Istanbul, Turkey

$2.6bn International Finance Center for the world's second most populous city

http://www.worldarchitecturenews.com...22237&q=turkey

The London and New York offices of HOK have released renderings of a 4.2million sq m mixed-use facility for the Turkish Government. The New Istanbul International Finance Center (IFFC) is under construction on a 70-hectare site on the city’s Asian side. Once complete the complex will encompass residential, retail, office, conference, hotel, and park space in a highly sustainable masterplan drawn up by HOK who have also designed two of the site’s office towers. The masterplan is split into four individual sections: culture; commerce; civic; and governance.

HOK President Bill Hellmuth, AIA, commented: “We are honored to have the opportunity to plan a world-class financial center in Istanbul - a city that historically has been such a dynamic global center for commerce. Our masterplan provides a framework for developing a sustainable financial center in a way that blends human need, environmental stewardship and economic viability into a new global model of urbanism rooted in Turkish culture.”

As part of their bid for the 2020 Olympic Games, Istanbul undertook a series of economic analyses which confirmed a rise of more than 8% in Turkey’s economy in 2011. Following the release of these figures, the Turkiye Milli Olimpiyat Komitesi said: “[This data] proves what we have been saying quietly and confidently for several years now: that Turkey is building a strong, stable and sustainable new economic model.” With the second largest population in the world behind Shanghai and a burgeoning economy, the argument for the city to receive an International Finance Center of this nature is strong.

Costing $2.6bn (€2bn), the project will incorporate a number of infrastructure improvements including a new subway line with associated station and infrastructure for sustainable power, water, data and security. All of these systems will be integrated into a podium which will provide the surface for a new urban park. Due to complete in 2016, work on the scheme has already begun onsite with excavation well underway.

Arup provided a variety of engineering, sustainability, information technology, communications and security design services during the masterplanning phase.
