ISTANBUL | Le Meridien İstanbul Etiler | 30 fl | Com

Le Meridien İstanbul Etiler
Istanbul, Turkey

FLOORS: 30 floors
COMPLETION: 05.10.2010



Istanbuls Segemented Garden Tower

Currently under construction is a new tower for the burgeoning Turkish city of Istanbul.

Currently named the Makyol Hotel Project it is located in the heart of the city and will offer expansive views of the river Bosphorus, the design for the tower comes from the drawing boards of architect Emre Arolat, whose work is somewhat prolific in Istanbul. When complete it will stand at 30 storeys, which works out to be approximately 110 metres in height.

Set on an L - Shaped concrete podium base the tower which stands on columns is square in shape and consists of three sections. One side effect of this is that it can be used highlight different uses within the tower.

The segmentation is achieved with the use of large open double height atria which cover two floors at separate heights of the tower. These not only look attractive but add to the residential amenity within the tower by providing relaxing open air spaces for people but also add to the towers green credentials with the feeling of hanging gardens.

Each section also has a different façade scheme, the first, lowest section features small, grid like window casements highlighted by white steel. The middle section is made up of slightly larger casements of irregular size that run in an irregular pattern horizontally again picked out by white steel. The final section features sleek, darkened glazing breaking from the patterns below and is finished with a flat peak featuring a roof garden.

When complete the tower will be home to a hotel with rooms and suites, office spaces, conference rooms, restaurant, bar, health club and a spa just in case anyone runs out of things to do or just wants to relax in somewhere other than the array of gardens.

All being well the tower is expected to be completed by October 2010.

Great design good location I would think more of the condos would be found closer to the high end hotels rather then more of the commercial districts

It's a nice development except that I think its location is a little bit strange. If it were closer to the Levent or Sisli clusters, it would be better imho.
