Mostly composed of detached houses in low density, Headquarters of Özgüven Architecture INC’s immediate surrounding is one of the highest hills and long-established neighbourhoods in Ankara.
The building which has 5 floors and 1250 m2 construction area on 599 m2 land is designed and realized to allow 40 people to work there. All floors including one floor underground are built to serve for different functions and units and considering these differences, principles in accordance with its functions are adopted in each floor.
The entrance to the building is on Rafet Canıtez Street and reception, finance and construction departments are located on this floor. Built as closed office units and open studio area, the ground floor ensures its visual theme with the ‘big void’ with other floors which connect all floors to each other. This ‘negative field’ is located right in the middle of the building and aims to obtain maximum benefit from the day light and strengthen visual relationship between spaces.
