IZMIR | Zorlu Plaza | Pro

Zorlu Plaza
Izmir, Turkey



Proposal 1

NAME: Zorlu Konak Residences
FLOORS: -
ARCHITECT: Emre Arolat

In the architectural design process of Zorlu Konak Residence building, the height of which seems to be inevitable to turn out an important triangulation point in the silhouette of Izmir, putting the role of forming massive composition into action and an accurate evaluation of the existence format of this building among the other high buildings increasing in number recently has been in question. In this sense the massive existence format of the recently constructed buildings especially in this district of the city such as Hilton Hotel and Heris Tower has been analyzed as samples. Also for this district of İzmir, just like in most world cities, the scale deformation on the silhoutte influences created by the existing high-rise buildings and the feeling of alienation occured by the massive solutions have been emphasized. The urban breakdown created by the tension between the big and monolithic blocks and the existing pattern around them has been accepted as problematic. It has been observed that on the examined buildings aggravating influences of the preferred monolithic massive design have come out as negative aspects on both close perception and silhouette influences.


For such situations the massive fragmentation potential of the building has been evaluated as a constituent which is more important than the height in the architectural resolution. The massive composition created in this sense has come out with the fragmentation orientation, units of which are the continiuation of the buildings in scale, located mostly in this part of the city. The parts that have been designed according to the proportions of surrounding buildings and have been approximately 8-10 storey in height have been separated by structural joints from each other; so in this way a building has been designed which is free from the tension of a unique and monolithic bulky building, increasing the integration potential with the city under the influences of silhouette and instead of being alienated from its surroundings having chosen to be the continuation of it in vertical axis.


It has been put forward that the permeability crystallization occured by the differentiation of the big terraces which will make important contribution to the internal living conditions and outer perception of the building and the sun/wind refraction used in the terraces will individualize the design. Rich landscape design made in these areas which will be arranged as a one floor gardens in some place and as higher volume upper gardens in different parts has been aimed to spread the new green texture composed in the urban block to the whole aspect of the building and to turn the building into a kind of vertical garden.

Proposal 2

NAME: Pasaport Tower
FLOORS: 38 fl
ARCHITECT: GAD

ZRL Pasaport is a competition proposal for a mixed-use residential tower in Izmir, Turkey. Izmir is located on the southern coast of Turkey, and is a city defined by the arid Mediterranean climate that is characteristic of this region. Thus, a proposal began to evolve that sought to balance the inherent desire for unobstructed views with the functional requirements associated with sun-shading and the Mediterranean lifestyle.
The project consists of a base or podium, with retail at the street level and office space located above. The residential tower sits on this podium, and a spa, gym & cafes open onto a landscaped garden. Therefore, the roof of the podium base serves as a semi-private garden for the residential tower.
The tower form is informed by a number of forces, including municipality restrictions, programmatic and unit-type distributions, ventilation requirements, and circulation patterns. The original rectangular form was first carved, given the municipalities requirements for a setback from the street. The tower form in turn was sculpted to create variation in the typical unit-type, and to allow for private and semi-private exterior terraces. A secondary skin, or enclosure, was proposed to make a formal connection between the base and the tower, and to solve issues of privacy, ventilation and circulation.
The ZRL Pasaport project therefore effectively balances the multiple competing forces on the site, and resolves issues of climate, view, privacy and lifestyle in this proposal for a new mixed-use development on the coast of the Mediterranean.

Personally I don't think 2 will stand the test of time, I like 1 better.

I sorta agree, but 2 does have rhythm, a lot of dynamics and it is very sleek. I'm guessing you're talking about the test of time in a sense of design and when it will be "dated". In that sense, the base is pretty fadish. Also, keeping it crisp and clean for years to come could make it loose its attractiveness if the owners neglect.

The geometries are nice in 1 but it has A LOT of materials going on and eh, looks a little too busy. Pattern also seems to be lost in translation so the facade makes very little sense.
