Umur Printing and Stationery Factory
Istanbul, Turkey
An unfinished industrial building was completed to house the office and production components of a printing concern. The original building was constructed of reinforced concrete. Steel was selected for reinforcement and extensions to the building. The ventilation system is prominently displayed. A geometric pattern of colored panes are attached to the front. The building accommodates the fixed in-place machines of the production facility and the flexible open space of the administrative offices, and provides a shared entrance and canteen.
