The building is desgined by Erginoğlu&Çalışlar Architects
Director: Süleyman Alper Çağlar
Designed as the research and development headquarters of Turkcell Teknoloji, a private telecommunication company, the structure is located on the outskirts of Istanbul in the Tübitak Marmara Research Center Technology Free-Trade Zone. Taking the site context, views and orientation into consideration, the building offers a single-storey entry, rising to four storeys on the office side. The higher side of the structure is comprised of office spaces and the areas overlooking the land receive light from the large space created from the roof down. Hence, the office spaces get natural light from all four sides. The structure emerges from the ground like a “slice of cheese” and, with its grass roof, allows the employees to take advantage of a recreational space. Owing to the fact that it is conceived as an IT and technological production center accommodating 500 employees around the clock, the building features highest technological standards. Hence, it encompasses resting and sleeping areas as well as showers, a fitness center, a climbing wall and a billiard room. The right wing of the building houses meeting and seminar rooms, whereas the left wing includes the fitness center and recreational areas.
