SWISS GOVERNMENT BOUGHT 800M2 PLACE AT ONE OF THE HIGH RISES OF ISTANBUL.THEY WANTED US TO TAKE RESPONSIBILTY OF APPLICATION PROCESS AND SITE CONTROL BESIDE DESIGNING ACCORDING TO FUNCTIONS.

THAT KIND OF BUILDINGS ARE SURRENDERING WITHOUT MAKING ANY INTERIOR DECORATION AND DESIGN.JUST MASS AND FAÇADE FINISHED BUT NOTHING DONE TO THE INTERIOR.IT IS LEFT AS AN EMPTY MASS.IN THAT POINT WE SHOULD DESIGN EVERY POINT OF INTERIOR.

VISA AND CONSULATE DEPARTMENTS-OFFICES-VIP MEETING ROOMS AND PLACES FOR VISA VISITORS, WHO ARE MORE THAN HUNDRED THOUSAND IN A YEAR, WILL TAKE PLACE AT SWISS LAWS AREA.

THERE IS NO SYMBOLIC RELATION THROUGH OUTSIDE AS A BUILDING, BECAUSE OF THAT ONLY WAY TO EMPHASIZE THE REPRESENTATIVE OF SWISS GOVERNMENT IS EMPHASIZING SWISS CONSULATE, AFTER ENTRANCE POINT OF ELEVATOR ENTRANCE TO FLOOR.

ALL OF THE AREAS ARE DESIGNED IN AN INTEGRITY FROM THE ENTRANCE POINT.
SURFACES ARE DESIGNED FOR PLACES BY RESEARCHING DETAILS AND HANDCRAFTS.BESIDE THAT CULTURAL HERITAGE OF SWISS-RELATION BETWEEN ITS NATURE AND TURKEY, REFLECTED TO MATERIAL IN DESIGN.

WALLS, COLUMNS, GROUND AND CEILING PRESENTED STRONG DIMENSIONS TO THE PLACE, BY ITS VOLUMETRIC AND TEXTUREL PROCESSING.

AUTONOMOUS DESIGNS OF ALL DOORS-PRODUCTION-COMPOSITION OF WALLS-CUBICAL STRUCTURE OF CEILING AND VOLUMETRIC GAMES- THEY ALL FOR SHOWING DELICACY OF WORKMANSHIP.

AREA OF CONSULATE PART IS FORMED BY CLOSED AND OPENED OFFICES.
ENDLESS TIE IS DESIGNED FOR MAKING INTEGRITY IN THIS PART. ENDLESS TIE MAKES RELATION BETWEEN WHOLE AREA AND ALSO IT LIMITS THE AREA.

ENDLESS TIE WHICH ENCIRCLES THE AREA IS FILLED WITH GLASS SURFACES.SOME PARTS OF TIE IS SEMI-TRANSPERENT-SOME IS TRANSPERENT AND SOME IS EMPTINESS.
