Third Place, Turkey

Architect: Melkan Gürsel, Murat Tabanlioğlu

Project:Zorlu Levent

Building for the prestigious brand
Multistory high-rise office tower is located at the financial district of Istanbul housing several of the world’s
top financial institutions and other service sector leaders. The hi-rise is situated parallel to the main street so
its footprint is a parallelogram, accordingly. Indentations in geometric forms of the main tower differentiate
communal areas separating four different office zones. Due to angled façades and forms, the building
gives distinct impressions at different perspectives. Idea of designing the building in compartments, both
at vertical and horizontal forms, is to have a flexible zoning program; this way, the whole complex may be
dedicated to only one brand, the different compartments in the block may be occupied by singular brands
while common zones are shared, or even those zones may be preferred as garden offices with high-ceilings.
