Atkins unveils designs for Istanbul landmark hotel



Istanbul landmark hotel

Atkins has released pre-concept designs for a major new 54,000 sq m five-star hotel in Istanbul, Turkey.

The 165m tall hotel, situated in the heart of the country's largest city, will provide luxurious accommodation over 40 floors and spectacular views across the Bosphorus.

The hotel will also feature a ballroom, which doubles as a conference facility with capacity for 1,200 people.

The Bosphorus Strait, which runs through Istanbul and Turkey, separating Europe and Asia, was the inspiration that design director, Tom Wright, and regional director Geku George, drew on to conceive the design for Istanbul's new landmark hotel.

"Separating East and West," says Geku, "the Bosphorus offers a mix of past and present, grand splendour and simple beauty. We have drawn on these themes in our designs, creating a hotel with an East wing and a West wing, and a feature water body flowing through the atrium at ground level."

The new hotel has been granted outline planning arrangement by the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipal Board, and the project is now at concept design stage. Anticipated final completion is expected in 2008

I like. This one looks great. The curvature really works. Who is the hotel operator?

It's TaşYapı ( a Turkish company )

We're going on rising. It's so afflective that tower supposed to locate in Asian part of Istanbul. It won't effect the skyline but at least we'll have another stunning 'scraper!

The architect of the Burj Al Arab prepared this one if I'm not mistaken.

Nicely done Istanbul!
It's good that they've finally stopped the old cheap blue glass box towers they used to build.
So is it going to be built in any of the 3 clusters, or would it be a standalone?

Unfortunately, yes. It will locate asian part of Istanbul in '' Kozyatagi '' where the great view of Bosphorus can be seen. Probably, it will be close to some other skyscrapers around Kozyatagi so we can expect a new cluster in Asian part, too.
