The building consists of two masses; one of them is the linear mass having an opaque surface and other one is the transparent mass with permeable surface. With interlocking of these two masses, dynamic volumes and forms are created in the interior and exterior. Maximum space is allocated to green areas in parcel scale and semi-open entrance area defined by top cover, provided continuity of green areas in the front and back gardens. 5m console of the library/meeting room in the upper floor is a protected area of the back garden in summer days.

Materials Specs

When we had failures at the production of exposed concrete facade  in the on-going construction process, it was decided to move on with C Stone product by kalesinterflex which also appeared to be conforming with the spirit of the design. Kalesinterflex dimensions allowed desired jointing system to be applied and its material performance let the design decisions to be realized.

Other than the kalesinterflex used on all surfaces, zinc was used as standing seam metal roofing in this plain building.

To have the same level for glass surfaces with the facade is an important design decision. Schüco Windows AWS system was used for windows opening in parallel without disrupting the geometry on flat face. This provides the best ventilation with the wide openings.

The simplicity achieved in the exterior of the building was also reflected in the interior. Pietra basaltina edilgres ceramics cover the floor in the waiting hall, floor halls, wet areas and terraces. Also ceramic step profiles of the same material were used on stairs.

In addition to their usage on floors, Kale products were also used on interior wall surfaces. The design consisting of kalesinterflex modules is included behind the reception desk. Gravel grey kalesinterflex was used on wall surfaces of wet areas. Mood Board La China Plank with wooden look on the garden floor meets the Kalesinterflex Antresit with linear line in the dining section.
