Yazgan Design Architecture as Architects

Artfully placed in 15,000m2 of manicured landscape, 'ONS İNCEK' is a luxury residential project consisting 3 colorful towers containing 992 residences.

Throughout the overall design, centrality is used as a major design principle at varying scales.

The towers encircle the central 5,500m2 amenities complex that sits at the heart of the design. Containing over 45 different social and commercial amenities, this hub gives emphasis to the self-sufficiency of the residential complex. While the amenities complex is open to public use along with residential use, the towers, that are attached to the center, have separate secure entrances which allows for the autonomy of the towers.

The theme of centrality is repeated within the floor plan design of the three towers. Each with its own unique central circulation core, the 41, 43, and 45 floor towers consists of 3, 4, and 5 winged floor plans. These differentiating floor plans contain 1+1, 2+1, and 3+1 residential plan options.

Color is also of great importance to the design intent. The facade consists of numerous colored glass panels that wrap the towers. Each tower facade is made up of 6 different tones of orange, green, or blue. This use of color not only differentiates the towers from each other, but also through the gradation from dark to light, gives emphasize to the heights of the towers. The heights of the towers allows for spectacular lake, forest, and city views.

Signaling the entrance of the residential complex, the showroom displaying the mock-up apartments, is designed with its contours sitting parallel to the inclined topography. With its multi-leveled, exposed concrete structure, the free space interior of the showroom is enveloped with a repetitive vertical glass panel facade. The colors of the glass panels are the same colors used in the towers, visually connecting the showroom to the residential complex.

The landscape is designed as layered ripples that descend while following the natural topography, as if originating from the central amenities complex. The design creates a large number of individual gardens containing a wide variety of plants indigenous to Ankara, Turkey.


REDVERTEX as Artists

For Red Vertex studio, the 'ONS İNCEK' project was a great opportunity and honour to work with the professionals at YAZGAN Design Architecture Co. Ltd. We were contacted by YAZGAN in mid-2013, and were very impressed by their professionalism. The communication process went smoothly, which is very important, when working on such big projects. The tall buildings were a great prerequisite to use portrait image aspect ratio for some of the images, as that increases the scale and perception of the skyscrapers. As you can see in the interiors, the main colors of the facade (orange, green and blue gradients) are also visible in some architectural elements, as that contributes for an unique and recognizable style of 'ONS İNCEK'. We have chosen to use mainly warm color schemes and filters, clear summer skies, and day lighting for the images, thus creating a cosy feeling and atmosphere for the viewer. Good looking CGI is no longer enough to impress the viewer, it takes going into detail and creating a mood that can make the viewers and potential clients to feel the atmosphere in their minds. Arch. Kalin Kosturov, associate director at Red Vertex studio, was in charge of the project, as he and his team produced 31 high-quality images. "It was a challenge for me and my team to produce such a big number of different images and a two-minute animaiton, in a matter of few months. Everything was modelled from scratch by the CAD drawings that were provided by YAZGAN. The most challenging part was probably the landscape, due to the large denivelation of about 30 metres. For the video part, we have animated cars and people and also used green screen footage of people, to increase realism." says Kalin, as he reminisces about the project.
