Dogus Automotiv Technology Centre
Kocaeli, Turkey
The 15.000m2 building is designed for the computer and electronic engineers who develop software for the group companies. The three-storey reinforced concrete structure is kept as a simple rectangular prism adopting transparency in contrast to existing surrounding blocks with blank masses. While the uninterrupted visual connection towards the wide horizon allows users with a consistent modulation, the facade itself becomes a colourful and dynamic screen of contemplation from outside. Social spaces are scattered within this compact building to trigger and propagate the interaction between users allowing a more pleasant working environment in a context of warehouses.
