DESIGNING FOR DESIGNERS

The land is bordered on three sides by transportation arteries and provides panoramic views both towards the direction of İstanbul and towards Edirne. The investment is made up of two separate entities, a furniture manufacture facility and a management/showroom area. The factory itself (the furniture manufacturing center) is more enclosed than the showroom section and while it evinces strong and clear lines architectural efforts was made to provide a continuity extending from through the use of interjections on the roof. An efficient roof lighting system is carefully designed for all units. The angles of the building determined to receive the most homogenous of daylight throughout the day. The bridges on the east-west side serve to monitor the interior of the factory.  The ground levels of the highway were used to determine the levels of the ground floor, thus permitting the establishment of a plateau which serves to support the exterior system.
