Renaissance Tower is located on the Asian side of Istanbul at the intersection of the two major highways that connect the continents. Due to efforts coordinated by the government, the Atasehir area is emerging into a financial center with all necessary infrastructures, as well as residential, retail and varied amenities to support a new world-class commercial development. At the center of this new prime location is the Renaissance Tower.

A fusion of cultural response and sustainable concerns guided the design. Renaissance Tower’s chiseled massing takes cues from Ottoman geometric motifs and draws inspiration from surrounding local landforms. The tower rises from its base and meets the sky gracefully to redefine Istanbul’s skyline, and become a new symbol of the city.

The tower is rotated 33 degrees for optimum solar control as determined through insolation modeling. A stippled golden scrim, tuned to the solar orientation, further reduces heat load. Together, these enable the incorporation of floor-to-ceiling glass while simultaneously achieving ambitious energy efficiency goals. A marriage of performance and ornament, this second skin coveys the spirit and aura of “The East”.

The tower features a four-sided structural glazed unitized glass curtain wall with full-depth shadow boxes, cantilevered metal scrim that provides intermittent shading on three elevations, double height sky gardens with structural glass spanning members, and a hybrid glass wall at the podium. The design is environmentally-friendly, using technologies such as floor-to-ceiling insulating glass to contain heat and maximize natural light, and an automatic daylight dimming system. Facets of the curtain wall to the east, south, and west have been designed with a perforated sunscreen panels as part of a sustainable strategy.

The unique asymmetric shape also gives the building a different appearance from every angle. Environmental emphasis is evident in green spaces laced through the tower. Three groupings of “sky-gardens” are strategically placed at key exposures. These two-story high gardens provide access to fresh air, a thermal buffer between the interior and exterior, and a respite for office workers. A larger exterior garden crowns the tower with a weave of planting and architectural elements. The base of the building is outfitted with varied features: a water garden reflects the tower and sky and a piazza provides a social focus. Taken together, these green spaces temper the insistent vertical stacking and hermetic environments often found in high-rise design.

They can't afford a bad cladding or it would look cheap with its original form.
