Palladium Tower Istanbul


International architectural practice, Swanke Hayden Connell Architects has won the design competition for the Palladium Tower project, in Istanbul, Turkey.

The 49,500 sq metre project, located on the Asian side of Istanbul was commissioned by Tahincioglu Gayrimenkul (Tahincioglu Real Estate). It consists of an office tower situated on a 1.7-hectare site.

The tower offers flexible Grade A office space arranged around a central core offering floor plates of between 900 and 1100 sq metres. The design includes a naturally ventilated landscaped atria at each level for the benefit of the occupiers.

The two-storey Reception Lobby is situated off a landscaped drop off area and is connected to meeting rooms, fitness, sauna, spa and cafeteria areas. Parking is provided below ground.

The external façade has been designed to maximise daylight into the office spaces, while maintaining a high degree of thermal insulation. Coloured glass spandrels have been oriented horizontally at high levels to provide uninterrupted panoramic views of the Bosphorus Sea.

Nick Birchall head of Swanke Hayden Connell’s Istanbul office, said: “The tower has been split by the landscaped atria zones into a composition of elegant stacked forms, working with orthogonal geometry to ensure floor plate efficiency and overall building economy. Façade colour adds interest and expression, whilst external illumination emphasises the building’s composition at night,” he adds.

The tower is positioned in the Kozyatagi business district adjacent to the Bosporus Bridge and at the cross roads of the E5 and the TEM highways.

The project is due for completion at the end of the first quarter, 2014.
