K Plaza - Entrance Hall and Circulation Areas
Kumburgaz / Istanbul
400 square meters
We offered schematic design services regarding the entrance and circulation areas of the four-story business center in Kumburgaz, Istanbul, after the completion of its macro-construction. The main determining factor was the use of simple and natural materials that could adapt to all the users as the business center planned to serve more than one particular firm. We concealed the problematic staircase view in the entrance with partial wooden elements vertically so that they would not interfere with the light transmission. The same wooden material was also used behind the counter to create a solid surface leading to a visual integrity. We aimed to direct the users to the circulation areas by covering the elevator walls with a natural stone that has a special three-dimensional finished surface. Also, we planned service compartments and restroom volumes to ensure their use by the physically challenged individuals too.
