ANKARA AEROSPACE SPECIALIZED ORGANIZED INDUSTRIAL ZONE
OIZ (Organized Industrial Zone) Office serves for administrative personnels and board of directors , in Ankara, Turkey. The project is a complex including an office building, a private restaurant and commercial area consisting of markets, restaurants, cafes and banks in a total 71.287 sqm land area.
For the office building, what generates the design and organizes the programs is the idea of integrating nature into the work environment. Therefore, the spaces are arranged in programmatic clusters which are integrated with inner gardens. The gardens make sure that natural light reaches every corner within the building, blurring the distinction between inside and outside in a way. Each office table has an inner garden on one edge. While separated physically with horizontal inner gardens, thus achieving ideal dimensions and clear divisions for different functions; visual continuity is maintained through transparency.
The clusters are organized as such: conference hall and meeting hall cluster, cluster of offices for different departments, VIP rooms cluster and cafeteria cluster. The depth of the clusters are utilized in such a way that the areas that do not require natural light, such as services and conference hall, are located either at the central core or inner edge in order not to hinder the relationship between the spaces and gardens. A continuous slab unites the clusters underneath and creates a free-flowing interior plaza which accommodates a small cafe, seating areas and the foyer of the conference hall.
There is a clear differentiation in the site such that it is divided into three zones. The middle zone is imagined as a small forest, accommodating only a private restaurant at the center, thus separating the office building and the commercial area.
