Alper Derinbogaz unveils “Office Central” master plan for Istanbul

1

Located in the heart of Istanbul in Sisli, Office Central is a masterplan project, designed by Alper Derinbogaz, founder of architectural design studio Salon.

The Sisli – Levent area, a former industrial and housing zone, recently has been transformed into the business center of İstanbul. The “Office Central Masterplan” project, acting as a combination of private and public commissions, proposes a shift in the ongoing formation of this important zone. On one hand, Office Central proposes “private investment to engage the surrounding” and “public space to stimulate and rejuvenate the building.” On the other hand, the project proposes the government to motivate the public space integration within the private investments.

The proposed program consists of offices, residences, hotel, retail facilities and a cultural center. The architectural approach of the scheme attempts to merge the proposed environment with the existing urban texture in relation to its scale and relative street network. Looking into reversing the logic of an isolated and domestic single inner-yard strategy, multiple public spaces are incorporated along the site boundaries by abstracting new boundaries, outward, from the dense central framework.

In an attempt to maximise the use of public space in relation to domestic functions, public plaza, streets and transport connections with a strong urban network are emphasised through the use of a built axes that cuts the center of the site. This axes, then collects the built environment through the central plaza and releases the edges for green and public based uses.
