Kimeks Office Building
Istanbul, Turkey
This two-storey building provides laboratories and storage rooms for a firm that exports medical products and requires sterile conditions for chemical manufacturing, medical testing and packaging. For safety reasons, the side of the building closest to the adjacent factory (a copper-wire manufacturer) has been designed as a fireproof shield housing the service areas. A strong reinforced concrete structure allows for the circulation of forklift trucks all around the building. The concrete is exposed throughout, both on the exterior and in the interior, including the floors.
