ARCHDAILY-ENKA POWER STATION HQ

Text description provided by the architects. Architecture for modern infrastructural systems such as transportation, energy or public utilities has consistently employed industrial materials to achieve material and structural continuity with the technical infrastructure they serve. In this administrative building for a natural gas power station for the ENKA company in the Adapazari region of western Turkey, a steel and glass architecture was applied wıth detailed attention to the rural context and operational needs of its engineering staff. The design for the ENKA Station administrative building responds to the technical requirements for managing the power station while also providing an exemplary office environment in a rural location. This is achieved through a structural aesthetic that provides ecological efficiencies and an optimal office environment for the staff. This architecture, a robust application of a building system in light steel and glass, generates a contemporary interior enviroment with both aesthetic and enviormental priorites. Sunlight, space and natural elements are balanced in the interior creating a postivie workplace but also importantly generating savings on electric energy, an important feature in a building for energy management.
