Enka Power Station Headquarters
Sakarya, Türkiye

A rare example of an architecturally significant building for energy infrastructure, this administrative complex responds to the technical requirements of power-station management while also providing an exemplary modern office environment for white-collar workers amid a rural landscape of low-quality constructions. Located in an active seismic area, it had to accommodate strict building regulations. The two-storey building consists of staggered glass boxes inserted inside a dramatically visible steel structure of arches, braces and trusses around several courtyards. The interior has both aesthetic and environmental priorities, with a balance of sunlight, space and natural elements that creates a positive workplace but also - importantly in a building for energy management - generates energy savings. Three different types of glass mediate sunlight based on functions.
