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.

Renovation of Bulgarian St. Stephen Church

Renovation of Bulgarian St. Stephen Church

Quote:
The Bulgarian St Stephen Church (Bulgarian: Църква „Свети Стефан“; Turkish: Sveti Stefan Kilisesi), also known as the Bulgarian Iron Church, is a Bulgarian Orthodox church in Fatih, Istanbul, Turkey, famous for being made of cast iron. The church belongs to the Bulgarian minority in the city. The Bulgarians of the Ottoman Empire used to pray at the churches of the Phanar Orthodox Patriarchy, but due to nationalistic movements, Bulgarians were allowed a national church in the 19th century, the Bulgarian Exarchate.

The richly ornamented church is a three-domed cross-shaped basilica. The altar faces the Golden Horn and a 40 m-high belfry, the six bells of which were cast in Yaroslavl, rises above the narthex. Initially, a small wooden church was erected on the shore of the Golden Horn between Balat and Fener squares (near Eyüp district), where the current church is located. A house was donated by the statesman Stefan Bogoridi and it was reorganized as a wooden church. It was inaugurated on 9 October 1849 and became an important site of the Bulgarian National Revival. The Ottoman royal decree of 28 February 1870 establishing the Bulgarian Exarchate was first read in the church.

After the original wooden structure suffered from a fire, the larger current building was constructed at its place. An iron frame was preferred to concrete reinforcement due to the weak ground conditions. The construction plans were prepared by Hovsep Aznavur, an Armenian of Istanbul origin. An international competition was conducted to produce the prefabricated parts of the church, won by an Austrian company, R. Ph. Waagner. The prefabricated parts, weighing 500 tons, were produced in Vienna in 1893-1896 and transported to Istanbul by ship through the Danube and the Black Sea.

After one and a half years' work, the church was completed in 1898 and inaugurated by Exarch Joseph on 8 September that year. The main skeleton of the church was made of steel and covered by metal boards. All the pieces were attached together with nuts, bolts, rivets or welding. In terms of architecture, the church combines Neo-Gothic and Neo-Baroque influences.

St. Stephen was the product of 19th century experimentation with prefabricated iron churches. The British, who invented corrugated iron in 1829, manufactured portable iron churches to send to far-flung colonies like Australia. The Eiffel Tower's creator, French engineer Gustave Eiffel, designed iron churches that were sent as far as the Philippines and Peru. Now St Stephen is one of the world's few surviving prefabricated cast iron churches.

On December 27, 2010, Saint Stephen's feast day, a celebratory mass was held at the church in honor of its patron saint. Attending were the Vratsa metropolitan Kalinik, bishop Naum, Chief Secretary of the Bulgarian Holy Synod, and representatives of the "St. Stephen Church" Foundation. Honoring the celebration the dome of the church was gold-plated using funds donated by the Bulgarians of Plovdiv.

In addition to the St. Stephen Church, there is another Bulgarian Orthodox church in Istanbul—the St. Demetrius Church in Feriköy.

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.

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.

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.

Greek minority set to open private university in Istanbul

Greek minority set to open private university in Istanbul



http://www.hurriyetdailynews.com/gre...&NewsCatID=341

Quote:
Istanbul’s Greeks are preparing to open a private university, one of the community’s members has told the Hürriyet Daily News.

The university will teach in Turkish, Greek and English, and will have departments such as Greek Language and Literature, Medicine and International Law. It is planned to be opened in the Merkez Greek High School in the Beyoğlu district of central Istanbul.

The project bloomed after 2011, when the Turkish State passed a historic decree to return property taken away from minority foundations 75 years ago.

The Yeni Yüzyıl University Health Sciences Dean Ersi Abacı Kalfaoğlu said the community discussed what to do with the foundation and high school then, and she was elected as the High School foundation head.

After the project was first coined, there was huge support from both within and outside of the community and Abacı Kalfaoğlu said that Turkey’s Higher Education Board (YÖK) fully supported the idea. Now, even though there are some procedural problems such as the absence of an article which allows the building to be used as a university in the contract signed during the returning of the building, the Directorate General of Foundations is also aiding the project.

Abacı Kalfaoğlu said that the university’s foundation could help to lure the Istanbul-nascent Greek academics of the world.

“Definitely,” she said, in response to the question of whether there could be a “reverse brain drain.”

“We have started holding talks,” Abacı Kalfaoğlu explained. “We have contacted some really important names.”

The Greek community has been facing the problem of schools being closed down due to lack of students and it has many empty and unused buildings, which could serve as university faculty buildings.

“There are many possibilities in terms of buildings,” she said. “The biggest problem is budget. We need a serious budget for the restoration of the severely damaged buildings. We already knew that it was not an easy project. We are planning to cooperate with other Greek foundations on that subject.”

Abacı Kalfaoğlu underlined that the university was not necessarily a Greek community project, and said it would serve not only the community members.

“This is the project of a foundation,” she said. “It will serve the country directly. Our aim is to contribute to the Turkish and Greek friendship, by way of science.”

The minority foundations representative for the Directorate General of Foundations, Laki Vingas, said this was a project that needed to be supported.

“Developing the minority communities serves the development of Turkey’s democracy, and it shows the harmony that exists in the community with the cosmopolitan structure,” Vingas said. “I am trying to contribute to any project in that sense. That is the only way we can develop a new and equal community.”

Quote:
The Naval Museum in Istanbul’s Beşiktaş neighborhood, where renovation works have been ongoing since 2007, will reopen its doors on Oct. 4. The museum, the biggest of its kind in Turkey, is home to 20,000 artworks and archives of 20 million documents. The most treasured piece of the museum is the world’s oldest galliot.

The Naval Museum’s Commander, Fatih Erbaş, said the museum was founded in 1897 by Commander Süleyman Nutki and was moved from Istanbul from time to time for a variety of reasons. He said it served in Dolmabahçe Palace in 1948 after World War II and was then moved to its current location in Beşiktaş in 1961.

Erbaş said they had decided to widen the display area in 2005, organizing a competition to determine how the construction would go ahead, with the winning proposal being that which was implemented.

The main building of the Naval Museum has been constructed in line with that project.

“The construction of the main museum building started in 2007 and ended in 2011. The main building is home to a boats gallery as well as the Barbaros Hayrettin Paşa Exhibition Hall in the lower floor and the Süleyman Nutki Multi-Functional Hall in the upper floor. We also have a hall bearing the name of Haluk Şehsuvaroğlu, who served as the director of the museum for 15 years. The Çaka Bey Hall functions as a gallery for temporary exhibitions, on the lower floor. The museum also includes the administrational building and sales stores. The operation of the museum will be different after the end of restoration,” Erbaş said.

20,000 artworks in museum inventory

He said the museum inventory included nearly 20,000 artworks. A historic galliot, which is the only one in the world, is the most notable piece in the museum. “It is presumed that the galliot belonged to the Ottoman sultan Mehmet II but research has showed that it dates back to the beginning of the 17th century, the term of Mehmet III. Galliots served as war tools on international waters for 2,000 years.

But this galliot was designed as a travel boat rather than a war tool,” he said.

Erbaş said history books referred to a galliot owned by the sultan Genç Osman. “We know that Murad VI is the younger brother of Genç Osman. He intended to keep the memories of his brother alive. It is believed that this galliot had been kept by him as a memoir of Genç Osman. The galliot is the world’s oldest one that was taken under protection before sinking,” he added.

He said the museum had 14 sultan’s boats, and most of them were from the 19th and 20th century.
Erbaş said the museum also included four copies of the Ottoman traveler Piri Reis’ “Kitab-ı Bahriye.”

Speaking about the importance of the museum’s archive, he said that it was the second biggest archive of the Ottoman period.

He said that works continued on archive to make it more digitalized. “Our archive is open to researchers. They can work with a very user-friendly system. We have some 20 million documents in the archive. They are from the 19th and 20th centuries. We also have maps, manuscripts and photographs as well as wood processing works, paintings, busts, firmans, garvaures, sultan signatures, etc,” Erbaş said.

Call for children and the youth

“The museum is in the center of the city and it waits for you,” he said, calling out for children and families. He said they had contacts with provincial education directorates and invited schools to the museum for free.

Erbaş said the museum would be reopened on Oct. 4 and could be visited every day except Monday and Tuesday between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. and between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. at weekends. “The fee is 1.70 Turkish Liras for students and 5 liras for adults. Our goal is to increase the number of visitors to 200,000 a year,” he said.

Maslak No:1 Commercial Center

Maslak No:1 Commercial Center
Istanbul, Turkey

HEIGHT: -
FLOORS: 28 floors
COMPLETION: -
ARCHITECT: Emre Arolat

The project prepared for the office building that is to be situated on the Mecidiyeköy-Maslak axis, near the Istinye junction, where Turkey’s foreign capital takes its most visible form, was conditioned by the tension that came out of the density of its environs, and the tight space allocated. It was the clients' wish that the construction would be a prestigious building, just like all the other surrounding structures which meant to be prominent, but instead give the impression of having been developed with no certain rule, plan or order.

Apart from the other projects along the Büyükdere Avenue, which is the main business district of Istanbul, Maslak No.1 Office Tower was designed to enrich the quality of the typical office space by vertical gardens. In order to accomplish that, a rational office block which was planned over a rational 8.25 x 8.25 m grid, enveloped with a free formed glazing system. The envelope, acting as a secondary facade in south and west directions, is detached from the building up to 17 meters wide letting vertical gardens in 20 meters high. The space in-between two facades was considered as a buffer both for the acoustical and the climatic sense.

The curvilinear plan of the facade formed by the 150x200 cm rectangular modules was designed regarding the perception from the highway. The facade was considered as a silicon glazing system having a translucent film layer over it. The opacity of the film layer diverse, up to the orientation of the curvilinear facade; on southern façade a less transparent pattern was chosen; however in north, almost a transparent film was used.
