The project for the headquarters building for the Turkish Ministry of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communication is an expression of our commitment to sustainability and our ambition to produce high-quality design for public buildings. The building has a gross floor area of 51,000 m² and consists of three interconnecting blocks. The minister’s office and other VIP areas are located at front block facing the main road. Other offices are located at the high-rise block with the dynamic form. The third block connects the front and the high-rise block used for employee and visitor entrances. Sustainability is the soul of this building. Renewable energy sources are used throughout. To save energy, passive design through good orientation, natural lighting, heating and cooling is employed. Wind turbines on the rooftop, PV solar panels, solar collectors, tri-generation systems, geothermal energy, grey water and rainwater recycling systems, LED lighting, and daylight sensors are also used in order to make this building a showcase for government’s view towards sustainability.
