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.

Istanbul is WAY too car-oriented. They are making a very big mistake. It is going to be a logistical nightmare in the coming years.

Turkey's ambitious healthcare vision for 2023

Turkey's ambitious healthcare vision for 2023

http://www.worldarchitecturenews.com...23398&q=turkey

Forum Studio aids the transformation of Healthcare in Turkey

Erik Andersen, Principal at Forum Studio has led design efforts on transformational projects for prominent academic medical centers and large healthcare systems in Turkey, across the U.S. and internationally.

We spoke to Andersen to find out what it is like to do business in Turkey? "It's fantastic. Turkey is at a pivotal moment in their history as they approach their 100 year anniversary as a Republic in 2023. They have found themselves in an enviable position of being one of the best places in the region for investors to invest in a country that has a stable and growing economy and a stable and pro-business government. Consequently their economy is booming and they have a growing influence in regional and global affairs."

Forum Studio has become a trusted design partner for Acibadem Healthcare Group, Turkey's leading private healthcare provider. Forum's work for Acibadem totals 1.5 million sq ft, with another 2 million in master planning (currently underway).

The 775,000 sq ft Altunizade Hospital will be located on a 160,000 sq ft site in a dense urban and primarily residential section of Istanbul. The new design will combine both inpatient and outpatient services into a single facility. A separate clinic tower and 192-bed inpatient tower will be linked by a common podium base of public amenities and diagnostic & treatment services. A multi-storey concourse extending the length of the podium will have distinct points of entry for inpatient, outpatient, and urgent care.

The 200,000 sq ft, 100-bed Taksim Hospital will be located on a 35,000 sq ft site in an older urban section of Istanbul, blocks from the historic Taksim Square. The small site required a very efficient design that incorporates both inpatient and outpatient services into a single eleven story tower.

A design concept evolved out of a desire to contribute to the 're-greening' of Istanbul with the incorporation of enclosed garden spaces articulated and celebrated as a series of multi-storey sky gardens. These naturally ventilated spaces will allow patient, family, and staff access from each of the six inpatient floors. Combined with an additional roof top sky garden these unique elements will provide all building occupants with linkages to nature and communicate to the community the value that the client places on healing patient environments and good environmental stewardship.

Acibadem University is a new university for state of the art education of physicians and caregivers for their healthcare facilities in Turkey and the surrounding region. Located on a 150,000 sq ft urban site this unique design integrates programs for research, education, and student living into a new university campus. The 600,000 sq ft project will allow Acibadem to educate future generations of healthcare providers for the communities they serve.

[IMG]http://i40.************/2vv6wlh.jpg[/IMG]



Andersen continues: "We are proud that Forum Studio is able to assist in the transformation of healthcare in Turkey through our exemplary healthcare design solutions. An example of our influence is demonstrated by over 100 people that attended a presentation on sustainable design that we delivered in Ankara at the invitation of the Turkish government. This month I am presenting at Hospital Build & Infrastructure, a major healthcare conference in Istanbul."

Forum Studio have achieved these projects through a focused business development effort and by teaming up with trusted local partners. They have been fortunate in finding a local partner in a major client, Acibadem Project Management.

Earlier this year, a widely anticipated law to regulate public-private partnerships (PPP's) in Turkish mega healthcare projects was passed by the parliament, as part of Vision 2023. The approval of the new public-private partnerships law looks set to provide the missing link in the country's pursuit of private investment in the health sector providing legal certainty, to cut the red tape, transparency and pave the way for government guarantees for international project financing investments.

Turkey's Ministry of Health PPP health program includes many PPP hospitals with total investment of more than $14 bn. Almost all of the existing public hospitals of the country will be renovated through PPPs along with the Greenfield investments in the sector. The program covers approximately 36-40 health campuses with a total bed capacity of 30,000 including 12 physical therapy and rehabilitation hospitals, 8 psychiatric hospitals.

The estimated time frame for almost 36-40 health projects is 2-8 years with a total investment of more than $14 bn. Fifteen Turkish hospitals and one TPHA + TPMDA Campus are currently under construction under a PPP framework, while one is in the contract stage, three in tender stage and more than ten are in earlier stages. These projects are expected to add more than 28,000 beds to Turkey's existing 200,000-bed capacity.

"The new PPP law is cutting red tape, increasing transparency, and paving the way and it is a major step forward and it has been hailed as one of the key achievements to improve Turkey's investment climate in healthcare projects," said Att.Ass.Prof. Dr. Ahmet T Kesli, Vice-Chairman of United Nations (UNECE) International PPP Centre of Excellence and Founding Partner of Group Law Firm.

"The new regulation is going to open the door for multi-million dollar investment by local and foreign companies by taking active part in the PPP in the health sector. Since the PPP Hospitals are part of Vision 2023 of AK Party and Mr. Prime Minister Erdogan, this new legislation would be a substantial contribution towards the sector in terms of legal and institutional structure of the PPP program of the country. Total investment requirement in infrastructure only is more than $500bn. This investment program is expected to boom not only the life standards but also it is going to be a triggering effect to the economy."

Levent 199

Levent 199
Istanbul, Turkey

HEIGHT: 170m
FLOORS: 42 floors
CONSTRUCTION START: 2010
ARCHITECT: Tabanlioglu Architects

www.tabanlioglu.com.tr

Thus multi-storey, high-rise office tower is located in the financial district of Istanbul, housing several of the world’s top financial institutions and other service sector leaders.

The complex consists of a 196-metre, major office tower with 47 office floors and garden; offices at floors 2 to 4 being the back wing at street level and below grade, relevant to the contours and backward sloping of the property.

The positioning of the masses naturally introduces 3 interior courts by uplifting the low-rise section and due to the elevation difference of the land. The terraced slope is encircled by garden-offices which have visual access both to the street and the patios.

The form of the tower with two telescoped blocks maximises the amount of perimeter; the structure gives a more fragile impression then one thick standard block and gains more rooms with a view that is supported by glass use on the façade where convenient, not having a massive surface.

Indentations in geometric forms differentiate the four communal areas separating 5 different office zones; there are meeting rooms, maintenance facilities and interior gardens at each notch born out of the intersection of the two blocks. Fritted glass applied at the office levels for sun control also designates the office zones, whereas sheer glass is used at the common areas. Each buffer zone is composed of 2 storeys and a mezzanine. Beside its transparency, the movement on the façade refers to interior functions that make the building genuine and legible from afar. Due to angled façades and forms, the building gives distinct impressions at different perspectives.

Compartments of the low-rise, like the tail of the office block, comprise a zig-zag shaped long main block and 3 smaller blocks connected to each other via bridges. Their irregular forms punctuate the vivid movement of the ground in horizontal term. The roof of these units is designed as green landscape areas. The structural diversity reflects on the positioning of the social areas, like cafes and inner gardens, in the patios sheltered by the pendent console above them. Green zones at courtyards provide a warm, natural and authentic atmosphere at the lower levels and create a view for the high-rise above. Being the main entrance, the transparent entrance box is formed on Büyükdere Street, as the prolongation of the low-rise behind the tower.

A contribution to the developing architectural vocabulary of the Boulevard, ultimately the iconic skyscraper is a powerful yet modest statement of corporate power.
