Cool offices: Sahibinden.com offices in Istanbul, Turkey
Designed by Erginoglu & Calislar Architects, the Sahibinden.com project is a modern office in the Asian side of Istanbul, with a total area of 5000 m² spread over two floors. The office has been designed in accordance with the spirit and corporate stance of this technology company to enhance employee productivity and overall comfort.
Creating a working space not simply for working, but also for social activities was the priority. To achieve this, spaces with functions other than work, were set aside for employees, and the necessary office capacity was provided on the basis of analysis of the company’s long-term growth potential.
The board room, meeting rooms and most of the working areas were located on the second floor, the plan of which was guided by the elliptical form of the building.
The working area was designed with an open-plan office approach where as the meeting and board rooms were scattered along the outline of the space, with a visual connection to the exterior.
In order to divide the space in the most functional manner and functionally disconnect the meeting and board rooms from the open office areas, amorphic forms in the shape of blind walls were placed along second floor.
