One of the practice's earliest completed corporate schemes, this operations centre for Yapi Kredi Bank is located on a steeply sloping site overlooking the Sea of Marmara. It houses 2,500 staff and comprises 10 linked courtyard buildings in a campus setting. Opened by the President of Turkey in 2000, the Centre includes administrative, operational, training, conference and social amenities, connected by a series of fabric-covered internal streets. The scheme involved masterplanning, architecture, space-planning, interiors and landscape. The design approach was inspired by the courtyards and covered markets of traditional Ottoman architecture, reinterpreted in a contemporary idiom.
