Located close to the proposed new International Financial Centre on the Anatolian side of Istanbul, the Government’s future symbol of Turkey’s position in the global economy, the Nidakule Atasehir development is a result of a revenue sharing partnership with governmental organisations Toki and Emlak Konut.
The overall development consists of two Class A office buildings, Nidakule Atasehir Kuzey and Guney. Kuzey, the larger scheme, has 31 floors above ground; Guney, the smaller, has 16 floors above ground. Both sit on significant podium structures in response to the zoning requirements for each site.
For the taller Kuzey building, the design principles follow a sense of proportion, an emphasis on verticality, and high quality finishes whilst maintaining a high degree of building efficiency.
The external envelope has a transition at 2/3 of the building height and expresses the top part of the tower as a beacon with expressed fins. The building has a highly efficient central core and contains high quality office space and high-rise VIP floors. The podium accommodates further offices, meeting rooms, conference centre, nursery, fitness centre and restaurant facilities.
Landscape design is an important part of the development and is used as the ‘fifth façade’ of both projects. On the top of the podium terrace, we have created an urban oasis for the benefit of the office users.
The project reached completion in the fourth quarter 2016, and is designed to achieve LEED Gold certification.
