Kavacık Office Building

Yazgan Design Architecture as Architects

Kavacık Office, which has 6.337 square meters of total construction area, was shaped through “writing the program of design” over the program which the client has given. The program components are labeled as “working areas”, “service”, “circulation”, “shop-car park”, “cafe”, “private meeting”, by taking needs and requirements into account, and are designed in separate volumes. Each volume exists in a whole with its own exigency. The single volume harboring all the “working areas” was selected as the center unit that all other volumetric units would attach to. The separation of service spaces, such as circulation and wet areas, from the main volume enabled open, transparent and free arrangement of working areas. It brought forward a certain flexibility that provided the grouping together of service shafts, the juxtaposition of wet areas and shaping of the volume according to technical requirements. The volume that harbors circulation systems is one of the main elements that offer the outside observer to develop an idea on the building. It helps to direct the intense circulation of the interiors to the outside in an easy way. Through this approach, the design sets up a flexible systematic on the road aimed at the built form. It took shape by “adding” various elements of design program together, “grouping” them into volumes, “arranging” them around the main central volume of working areas. “The design of the design act”, an approach based on constructing the design acts, was the motto that gave way to the built form.
