The area on the brink of the Istanbul next to the Istanbul-Ankara highway is valuable with ease of access and relatively cheap land especially for big warehouses and manufacturing plants. Within the last decade the sites in this area started to be allocated not only for blue-collar but also for the white-collar workers of the companies.
Dogus Technology Centre is an example of such buildings where it is placed next to the Dogus Automotive’s customs site. The 15,000sqm building designed for the computer and electronic engineers who develop software for the group companies. The three-storey reinforced concrete structure is kept as a simple rectangular prism adopting transparency in contrast to existing surrounding blocks with blank masses.
While the uninterrupted visual connection towards the wide horizon allows users with a consistent modulation, the façade itself becomes a colorful and dynamic screen of contemplation from outside. Social spaces are scattered within this compact building to trigger and propagate the interaction between users allowing a more pleasant working environment in a context of warehouses.
