Architect firm Tabanlioglu has won two awards for its ESAS Aeropark in Istanbul.
The project was named as Mixed-Use Building of the Year at the LEAF International Awards held in Dusseldorf, Germany, while also winning in the same category at the London International Property Awards
ESAS Aeropark is located at the Asian side of Istanbul, at Kurtkoy. The main construction consists of two separate structures with seven and nine floors.
With a mix of offices, residential and commercial space, this building’s bold curvilinear flowing glazed facades reach out and embrace the exterior.
Blocks are positioned to provide shelter from the north east wind and optimise sunlight and daylight and continuous transparent glazed facades at ground floor level offer visual interest connecting both the public and private realms of the building.
The design looks like two elongated capsules, their soft curves and connecting arcs creating an elegant flow.
Small cafés act as meeting places and besides balconies and terraces, each of the buildings have high atriums with open roofs that grant natural air and optimum daylight to the interiors.
