Project : BURSAGAZ HEAD OFFICE
Date : 2012
Location : Bursa / Türkiye
Employer : Bursagaz
Construction Area : 10.000 m²
The Bursagaz Head Office building is the headquarters of a local natural gas distributor.
The building is opened to use in May 2016.
The design concept is based on integrating renewable energy systems into architecture and on the expactations of the client for a prestigios headquarters building.
In the project, it was very important to create a high quality work environment
so we challenged the traditional double-skin facade section of
the building in order to also offer shaded balconies that surround the office space.
The one outer skin is arranged using modular BIPV panels, while the other using painted glass shadings. When these two come together, they
account for an irregular rhythm of shadows on the interior of the building.
The building is unique in Turkey in that it not only combines BIPV panels and a solar-paneled roof but it also reuses rain
and drain water therefore is a strong candidate for Leed Platinium.
