Highlighting the features of the spaces was key, as well as the different connections: two street entrances, one neighboring building and the subway stop entrance. The sculptural ceiling was also great to get some graphic details hots.   Photographing an office building lobby during the COVID pandemic was challenging. We had to bring a few models f... More

BUSINESS CENTER IN OPOLE

The most valuable ideas are created not in the office desk, but far from it. They need inspiration, air and coincidence. The purpose of project was to make friendly space.

Bangladesh Railway office building

Bangladesh Railway is an extremely important organization with a proud heritage. Therefore the head-office building of Railway needed to be such a building that will be an iconic building in the city. The way the building has been conceived is that of a multi-faceted sculpture that shifts away from the harsh sun light of the west and faces towards the south-east. This faceting not only improves the quality of light and reduces heat gain inside the building but it also creates an abstract sculptural quality of which will make the building extremely unique in the skyline of the CDB of Dhaka city. The building-abstractness will give it a timeless character which we feel is befitting for an organization like Bangladesh railway. More

Focusing essentially on the individual, functionality and usability, this building combines them to offer an architectural creation which stands out among so many others in one of the fastest growing business areas of Ankara.

Mermerler Plaza

It is no secret. Concrete structures sprawl Istanbul’s urban metropolis. For the past decade Istanbul has been an ever expanding construction site. The rise of this so called “concrete jungle” depicts a time of rapid change. Yet during these times, our core studio philosophy has remained the same. Ergün Architecture has long posited a balance between art and utility at the very centre of its’ practice. Mermerler Plaza is a testament to such an objective. This parent-child building duo is located in the Kozyatağı district of Istanbul. The tall wavy glass walls provide a playful contrast to its shorter aluminium enveloped counterpart. In order to preserve the southward looking façade from the sun, the design incorporates randomized tan c... More
