Denizbank, which has been one of the leading companies of the banking sector in Turkey, has decided to unite all their offices that have been located in various buildings around Gayrettepe in a single building to provide a stronger communication between departments, obtain a much productive management and to provide improved services in the future years. With this objective, the largest rental agreement in Turkey had been made and 28 floors in addition to the basement floors of the Torun Tower office building in Esentepe have been rented. Architectural project design and construction site controlling services of the mentioned areas were given by Erginoğlu & Çalışlar.
Areas that are densely occupied and therefore which require larger areas, such as Call Center, Academy, Food court, Cafeteria, Medical room, etc, are located in the basement floors, whereas departments related with the banking transactions are located on the office floors above.Floor plans have been organized in regard with the triangle-form of the building and the core areas have been covered with fabric panels which act as a protective system for acoustic reasons and which reflect the bank’s corporate identity. The open office areas are solved around this shell and the corners are designed for Assistant Manager rooms.On every floor, coffee corners have been designed for the people who are working in the open offices and these areas are supported by lounge areas.
Two floors, on one of which the meeting rooms and on the other, executive departments are located, are designed distinctively. On these floors, marine elements have been integrated with the interior design in relation with the history of the bank.Lighting has been designed in consideration of the perception from the outside and within this perspective, similiar elements are used on each floor which emphasizes the entirety and the radial effect of the building.The office building, which is one of a few offices that occupies around 4500 people, is regulated by mechanical and electrical automation systems.
