SOCIETA OFFICE BUILDING
YAVUZ TEKSTIL OFFICE BUILDING KNOWN TO MANKIND FOR 5000 YEARS, THE CONCRETE OCCUPIES A PLACE FOR ITSELF IN ARCHITECTURE, NOT ONLY AS A CONSTRUCTION MATERIAL, BUT ALSO AS A SIGNIFICANT AND PLEASING ARCHITECTURAL ELEMENT WITH ITS EXTREMELY ESTHETIC AND USEFUL SHAPE. EXPOSED CONCRETE CONSTITUTES MAIN CONCEPT OF YAVUZ TEKST?L OFFICE BUILDING WITH ITS TEXTURE, SHAPE AND COLOR AS WELL AS PLAIN AND SIMPLE STANDING AND THE AIM HERE IS ESPECIALLY TO EMPHASIZE ON MULTI-PURPOSE RICHNESS OF EXPOSED CONCRETE. WHITE EXPOSED CONCRETE WAS USED IN ORDER TO ATTRIBUTE A SPECIAL MEANING TO EXPOSED CONCRETE USE AND TO ENSURE DESIRED REFLECTION ON THE BUILDING’S FRONT. ONE MAY WITNESS LIGHT AND SHADOW, LIGHT AND DARK, ARTIFICIAL AND NATURAL, AND CONSEQUENTIALLY WHITE EXPOSED CONCRETE AND PIETRA LEVICA MARBLE DANCING OVER THE BUILDING’S FRONT. AT YAVUZ TEKST?L OFFICE BUILDING; WHILE EXPOSED CONCRETE COMPRISE CARRIER SYSTEM OF THE BUILDING, WHITE EXPOSED CONCRETE ARE UTILIZED AS FACING ELEMENT ON THE OTHER HAND. WHITE EXPOSED CONCRETE APPLICATION, WHICH IS NOT COMMONLY ENCOUNTERED DUE TO CONSTRUCTION DIFFICULTY, WAS CARRIED OUT AT THIS BUILDING WITH ESTHETIC AND EMPHASIZED RESULTS, AND PRODUCED USING SPECIAL AND CUSTOMIZED MANUFACTURING METHODS. VARIOUS TESTS WERE CONDUCTED IN ORDER TO CAPTURE DESIRED COLOR AND TEXTURE, AND THEREBY THE RATE PROVIDING PREFERRED AFFECT WAS OBTAINED. THE BUILDING WAS HANDLED AS A SCULPTURE IN RESPECT OF ITS LOCATION; EVEN ITS TIE-ROD HOLES AND JOINT GAP PLACES WERE SPECIALLY CONCEPTUALIZED INTO THE PROJECT. WHITE EXPOSED CONCRETE OF THE BUILDING BEARS BS16 STRENGTH. ON CONCRETE SURFACES WERE APPLIED CHEMICALS PROTECTIVE AGAINST FREEZING AND RUSTING, WHICH DON’T ALTER CONCRETE’S COLOR. ALL THESE APPLICATIONS COLLECTIVELY TURN THIS BUILDING INTO A MATCHLESS, SINGLE AND UNIQUE PROJECT. THE BUILDING, AT WHICH WHITE EXPOSED CONCRETE APPLICATION WAS SUCCESSFULLY IMPLEMENTED AND PREFERRED AFFECT IN DESIGN WAS EMPHASIZED, HAS SATISFIED THE ARCHITECT AND THE USER THANKS TO ITS ACTIVE FRONT AND SUCCESS IN MATERIAL HARMONY, YET MORE IMPORTANTLY, HAS BROUGHT A NEW BREATH TO OFFICE ARCHITECTURE BESIDE STANDARD APPLICATIONS. LOCATED IN GÜNE?L?, DEVELOPING COMMERCIAL ZONE OF ISTANBUL, YAVUZ TEKST?L OFFICE BUILDING IS POSITIONED ON A 3000-M2 LAND PLOT. CONSTRUCTION AREA OF 10 780 M2 IN TOTAL WAS PLANNED ON 7 FLOORS IN TOTAL, AS 5 FLOORS ABOVE THE GROUND AND 2 FLOORS BENEATH THE GROUND. BUILDING’S OFFICES CONTAINS SHOWROOM AND MANUFACTURE AREAS EQUIPPED WITH ADVANCE TECHNIQUES. BECAUSE OF ALL THESE FEATURES; THE BUILDING WAS GRANTED THE TURKISH READY MIXED CONCRETE ASSOCIATION AWARD FOR 2008. INFO TAG: Architectural Project:2Design Mimarl?k Ltd. ?ti. Sema E.
