With its unexpected format, the Tema Istanbul Showroom is the daring showcase of Tema Istanbul, a multipurpose project currently being developed in Istanbul, which will endow the Turkish city with a multifunctional space, which will include thousands of residential units and a luxury hotel, an entertainment complex and a shopping centre.
Designed by the Yazgan Design Architecture practice, the aim of this 1500-sqm showroom is to give a detailed insight into the many sides to the Tema Istanbul project, so that, in addition to administrative offices and sales rooms, it includes show apartments, a gallery revealing the different configurations of the 4000 residential units that will be available and visual panels of the overall project.
Built on a sloped green landscape, the showroom offers harmony and visual continuity to its visitors, who, once inside, remain surrounded by the green hues that can be found outside. Reflecting the innovative spirit of the Tema Istanbul project, the building that houses the showroom is itself revolutionary. Covered in mirrored glass, during the day the cubic structure reflects its surroundings, so that it is almost hidden by the elliptical structure around it and which seems to hang in the air. At night, this white envelope is lit up and transforms into a light sculpture, with changing colours.
