ISTANBUL | Levent 199 | 170m | 558ft | 42 fl | Com

Zorlu Plaza
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.


The winning project:

It is not tall enough

It should have been minimum 300m, and I didn't like its desing.

yes that "sort of spire" makes this building 216 meters and it is habitable.

According to me, this project is disappointment, I expected better. The area is in the middle of Levent skyline.

In the diagram, main tower is higher than in the renders, when you consider the proportions. So tower will look better, although it didn't made a WOW effect on me.

I found that circulation tower a bit strange, but I think we can not consider it as a spire, because it is not.. Just a very thin tower.. So official roof height will be 221m. That's cheating, absolutely..

Btw, height is not 216m but 221m when you consider the back street level, and I think it should be refered as official height.

I don't like the new tower either. The spire is disproportional and the cladding looks poor (okay it is just a render).

That blue circular building looked so young and modern. I don't know if they should tear down the building next to it that is in a lighter shade of blue for a different project.

All of those proposals look hideous, sorry. Even if this is a residential highrise.

I've seen way better designs for Istanbul.
