Selcuk Ecza Headquarters, Istambul (Developer: Selcuk Ecza Holding. Progetto Tabanlıoğlu Architects : Melkan Gürsel & Murat Tabanlıoğlu).
Like a small county settlement, juxtaposition of seven house-like volumes with hipped roofs forms the office campus.The individual ‘houses’ integrate to each other either through gardens, roof gardens, upper or lower patios and paths and atriums. The brown color of the exterior brings up the soft wood effect and unifies the structure. Daylight enters through roofs and all transparent sides, creating a diffused lighting mood in the spacious internal space until the basement floor.
