ONS INCEK SHOWROOM & SALES OFFICE
Artfully placed in 45,000 sqm. of manicured landscape, 'ONS İNCEK' is a luxury residential project consisting 3 colorful towers containing 992 residences. Signaling the entrance of the residential complex, the multi- leveled showroom displaying the mock-up apartments, is designed with its contours sitting parallel to the inclined topography. Located under the central atrium, the large model of the residential complex is at the focal point of the showroom.
With varying modes of circulation, including ramps, stairs and elevators, the visitors are able to move with ease throughout the free space interior. The private offices are located on the top floor, while the residential complex models and sales associates are located at the ground level. At the basement level, the three fully furnished mock-ups of the apartments are displayed.
In façade design, it is influenced by the flora and fauna of the middle Anatolian region which is characterized by a dry and arid climate, short sturdy bushes, orchard grass and some trees. Three primary colors were selected as a turquoise blue, a warm green and a deep yellow. Then gradient scales were created with range of these colors. As the colored glass moves around the façade, the color gradient moves from cool colors and warm colors and back to cool colors.
The interior of the showroom is enveloped with a numerous amount of repetitive vertical colored glass panels. With its multi-leveled, exposed concrete structure, the showroom is predominantly a medium grey color. This creates a unified background for the color of the glass panels to be more accentuated and visible from a distance. Color is also of great importance to the overall design intent of the project as a whole. Each tower facade is also wrapped with glass panels and is made up of 6 different tones of orange, green, or blue. 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.
