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.

Newada

Newada
Istanbul, Turkey

Homepage

HEIGHT: 104 m
FLOORS: 32 fl / 21 fl
ARCHITECT: GAD Architecture
VIDEO: http://vimeo.com/18746711#

Newada is a high-rise luxury residential project, located on the Anatolian side of Istanbul. Although the European side of Istanbul is better known as the business center of Istanbul, the Anatolian side still contains the largest amount of housing. Maltepe is located approximately in the center of the Anatolian part of Istanbul, near the Marmara Sea coastline with spectacular views awaiting the future residents.

Capturing views of the Princess Islands is a major ambition for the project. The 800m long southern border of the site faces the Marmara Sea and is not obstructed by many building, so this affords a unique opportunity to see the Princess Islands.

A building proposal focusing on a modern lifestyle in Istanbul can not be thought of without considering issues of traffic and car circulation. The project site contains a great opportunity in terms of its proximity to several major road connections, including the E5 which allows for ease of access to many coastal areas. This advantage would alleviate most of the traffic issues for the residents.

Original design studies concentrated on solar studies aimed at limiting the shadows of the towers cast on neighboring buildings. In order to achieve this, an adaptive sky exposure plane simulation was prepared with the aid of a grasshopper plug-in for rhinoceros software. Using sliders and coordinate marking boards, the artificial sky exposure plane was simultaneously used to reshape the building to maximize the buildings allocation, and to minimize shadows.

Therefore, the buildings are optimized to obtain the maximum view of the Princess Islands while also obtaining the most sunlight. The balconies surrounding the buildings are located between a semi-open stone facade and a glass inner facade. This provides a cooling effect in the summer and a heat-trapping effect in the winter.

The project contains two blocks on a shared base. The ground level contains shops, including boutiques, dry cleaning, barbers, and residential services accessible to the residents. The project site is partitioned into two zones, by taking advantage of level differences on the site. While the bottom level is used for the main entrance and public spaces, the upper level is used for private gardening and reflecting pools. Ground and basement levels are connected by an active courtyard and stairs, and lobbies have openings into this courtyard. Protection from the elements is provided by a glass & steel structure above.

The site area is 11,872 m², and the total construction area is approximately 50.000m².

Few materials are used in order to provide unity on the site and in the overall detailing. There are four primary materials: stone, concrete, glass and steel. The stone cladding is the main material giving the project its unique charecter.

Koç Contemporary to open in 2016

Traditional Ottoman design inspires winning competition entry for Koç Contemporary

A Grimshaw-led team including Thornton Thomasetti, Max Fordham, Neill Woodger Acoustics and Jason Bruges has won a competition to design a significant new museum in Istanbul. The Koç Contemporary, a contemporary art museum headed by the Vehbi Koç Foundation, is due to open in 2016 with a splendid array of modern art for the enjoyment of local people and tourists to Istanbul.

Boundaries between inside and outside space have been left blurred by the team who wish to encourage passers-by to enter the facility. The Koç Contemporary is destined for a prime site in Beyoglu, a thriving area which is rapidly being updated with new clubs, commercial outlets and cultural venues.

Grimshaw’s design draws on this buzzing redevelopment and the uprising of cultural institutions in the area as well as traditional local architecture for a bold and vibrant aesthetic. This is not only a destination for visitors to enjoy the work on display but a venue for study, conservation and preservation. Once completed, the Koç Contemporary will house paintings, video, media installations and performance art.

Speaking of the project win, Kirsten Lees, Partner in Charge of the design, commented: “Koç Contemporary is a hugely exciting and ambitious project that will have a significant impact not only on the role of contemporary art in Istanbul, to educate and exchange ideas, but on the regeneration of a rich and diverse area of the city.

“The inter-relationship between architecture, place and the collections informed our proposals to enrich the visitor experience. The brief provided a remarkable opportunity for integrating a wide range of activities, events and disciplines in a single complex. We are honoured to be a part of designing such a vital cultural landmark.”
