Construction progress at Vakifbank Istanbul
Vakifbank is one of the leading major banks in Turkey. Its new head office is currently being built in Istanbul. Based on a design by Tabanlioglu Architects, a five-story base building and two high-rise buildings (100 and 200 meters high, respectively) are being built there on 250,000 square meters. The base building houses restaurants and stores, while the floors above contain offices and conference rooms. Underneath the building complex is a three-story underground parking garage. Werner Sobek is responsible for the facade planning (preliminary design, design planning, approval planning, imple-mentation planning).
