The project facility is inside an integrated canned pickle factory production and storage complex of 72 acres land located in Kemalpasa district of Izmir, Turkey. The north-south axis orientation and the east façade shaped as an arc follows the stream path, the other facades are linear due to the lot’s perimeter. The main axis where the supplies are dropped off separates this area from the rest. During the design process the main two determinants were the climate conditions and the different user’s programmatic needs. Therefore, the interior organization and the general form of the multi functional administrative facility program is governed by these two. The organization of the complex including the main entrance of the facility, the security building, the parking lot, the product drop off and the social facility is re-designed to interconnect the programs. The disturbance on the south facade from direct sunlight during long summer hours affecting the comfort is eliminated through the use of concrete as the building’s structural support which is designed as a curtain wall system. The system is continuous all around and shadows the façade windows. The west facade is designed with a secondary wall layer creating limited visual access to the factory. The building is consisted of four levels; first floor, conference hall and meeting rooms, second floor, general offices, third floor, administrative offices, fourth floor, guest welcome area and common spaces, and the intermediate space becoming an interior garden.The internal spaces are flexible; the diversely programmed rooms are separated with demountable partitions which allows for future growth and change in the program needs. All the program volumes link andopento the centralatrium. Atrium space reaches until the ground level is used by multiple groups becoming both a socializing and relaxing space. It is also visible from all floors and isolates the staff from the industrial area.The vertical circulation, including the stairs and the elevator at the end of the atrium, is designed to have maximum transparency. During the use of the elevators, they are visible from all levels.
