Ortana Factory and Administrative Offices

IGLO Architects as Architects

Ortana is a company which produces electronic panels for traffic signalisation and sells them to many countries over the world. They wanted a new building to increase the production capacity and in order to take a bigger share in the international market. They have a process scheme which require a continuous workflow and many cranes operating at the same time.

The building is designed to have one big production hall where many cranes operate and offices.

Office hall is placed all along the South facade and the production hall is placed adjacent to it having north, west and east facades taking daylight in through the policarbonate facades.

The design evolved around several principles one of which is using the daylight especially for the workstations where very fine workmanship is applied. Roof lights are designed to take advantage of daylight in the production hall.

The 3.500 m² office space is designed with the aim to achieve a prestigious and comfortable working environment where both the employees and the guests will feel good.

By placing the offices along the south facade which is the higher part of the land overlooking a wide horizon, a spacious work space with a deep perspective is achieved.

The big sunbreaker element placed on the transparent south facade for solar control is designed to have a high- tec look to reflect the hi-tec products which are produced inside the building.

Inner courtyards formed on each office floor to meet the need of fresh air of the employees throughout the day.
