“The design process which is shaped by the corporate colors of the company, each department is planned as an ‘open office’ in itself. A colorful atmosphere is created with selected colored puffs and flexible mobility is ensured. In the entrance section, naturalness is anticipated with a marble wall with bookmatch. The flattened feeling that can be caused by the low height of the building aimed to eliminated with a linear ceiling system. The wall coverings and furnitures were made of laminate, MDF laminate and all the moving and fixed furnitures are owned current products of ASD. By means of these, the office environment was transformed into a natural showroom.
Batur and Batur Architecture gave importance to use products that are suitable for acoustic criteria and intensive use in floor coverings. They used extra devices for providing fresh and conditioned air to improve work comfort in the office. Ergonomics is of special importance in work tables and seating groups, curtains and interim separators have been used to prevent noise pollution due to the open office system and intensive telephone calls in the ‘sales and marketing’ department. Energy efficiency has been considered in all products selected for lighting. In the meeting room, a wall panel displaying new products for participating business connections is placed. For more functional usage, the storage unit in which the materials are located, also used as a writing pad with a sliding mechanism. In the CEO’s office, the outside view was used effectively. Pleasant chat environment created by the help of comfortable seating groups in business meetings.”
