DOGUS REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT & MANAGEMENT CO. NEW HEADQUARTERS BUILDING
LOCATION:
Istanbul, Turkey
SIZE:
36,576 m2
Commissioned by a Turkish real estate developer to provide iconic building designs for their new 25-story Corporate Headquarters, the firm developed two distinct designs.

The first, called “Aspire,” creates a dynamic form by using the simple concept of a square floor plan with a small cut at the corner rotating along the height of the building. The building seems to turn, creating an intriguing and unique vision from all angles. This feature also orients interior spaces to maximize views in all directions. The building has a side core that allows an open, column-free floor plan on all levels.

The second scheme, named “Facet-nating,” uses a more conventional floor plate and articulated curtain wall to achieve its distinctive appearance. The design permits principal offices to have windows on two or three sides.
Both solutions use light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to enhance nighttime imagery.
