The task was to create a proposal of multi-functional complex including street market, spa and business center in Izmir, on the coasts of Aegean sea. Site was divided in two parts but had to function as a single complex. The Project was developed as an alternative approach to multi-functional building typology. It is developed in two parts

 

 

First part of the complex represents horizontal human flow, which is composed by dense high green content in the center surrounded-with the market activities as a context of the space. Commercial functions are framed by wooden structure which creates the feeling of unity and the single identity to the diverse market. There are two entries to the market; one passing through the spa area with significantly blind facades with monumental aura of purification.

 Other – main entry goes under the office tower giving opposite approach with more open and dynamic facades inviting the city into the complex. Second part of the complex represents vertical human flow with high tower having floors of different heightsrepresenting vibrant and diverse working environment in the building. The wide podium of the tower is developed as a big public co-working area having huge private garden on top of it.
