Situated at the meeting point ofseveral major avenues and extremely well served by publictransport such as metrobus. Rising on the corner of E-5YanYolu and 1993. CD streets. TheFERAH distinguished itself as a strategic location for the insertion of this newcommercial enterprise of the future city centerside of Istanbul. It was a great challenge to design aninviting and open office building instead with two glassblocks. To achieve this we designed one large buildingattracting the attention from E-5 Yanyolu street with fourpublic inner roof Garden. The projectsarchitectural design approach is inspired by the sites shape so weworked with a continuous gradual façade on theback side, thus conferring a special outdoor space tothe surroundings by pushing the building back to maximumsetback.
