Turkish tower wins RIBA International Award

Loft Gardens

A 21-storey residential tower in Istanbul, designed by Turkish architecture firm Tabanlioglu, was among the 13 winners of the RIBA International Awards 2011.

The project, called Loft Gardens, was described by judges as “an extreme demonstration of elegance and restraint within a subtly modified typology”.

Another Middle East building to be recognised was Foster + Partner’s Masdar Institute in Abu Dhabi.


Inaugurated in 2005, the RIBA International Awards honour outstanding buildings outside the UK.
