This building we designed 15 years ago was not constructed, as the one in the Dudullu Industrial Park had taken priority.  When we began revisiting the project, the functions had changed, but the land data remained the same.  

Set in a property with a level difference of 25 meters and surrounded by a road on three sides, the building has loading racks at four different points. By separating functions of different concentrations and needs, we created units that were contained in the same building but could work as different factories without bothering one another. So, this solution could be interpreted as transforming the disadvantage of height level into a range of possibilities.

Largely made with reinforced concrete due to functions and conditions of construction,  the building’s large openings were designed in steel—a decision that culminated in the optimization of time and construction technology.
