Project Site Area:
In response to the emerging need for offices in the area after Autopia’s success, a new project was began by Keleşoğlu ve Gül İnşaat. The building is conceived as an expansion of Autopia, which currently functions as an internal road of E-5 highway. This relationship not only strengthens the accessibility of the building but also creates spaces for inner courtyards and plazas.
Around Autopia and Autopian, an environment where vehicle use is heavy, pedestrian traffic and circulation are the main concerns. The area was regulated and designed according to walkways. Since the building cascades from E-5 front backwards, the open spaces are used as terraces, gardens, and recreation areas.
