Designed by Çinici Architects / Can Çinici, Workinn is the first hip hotel in Gebze, located within TAYSAD organized industrial site (TOSB) at the outskirts of Istanbul in a recently established suburban center ‘Cayirova’. The 162 bed hotel utilizing 12 000 m2 closed area, resides nearby a busy traffic interchange connecting the campus with a transeauropean motorway. Being so close to roadways thus creating the atmosphere of a stopover hotel helps in keeping memory of a temporary accommodation alive. The hotel is commissioned and managed by Uyar Group.
Tectonically the building is divided into two main parts; ‘The base’- 2 storey high accommodating the lobby, bar, restaurant and meeting rooms, and the ‘white mass on top’ - comprising three different types of rooms - standard rooms, executive rooms, studio flats. The distinguishing tectonic character of the L-shaped white mass in plan is its facade built out of giant prefabricated concrete panels where the windows are treated merely as intervals in between.
The Building which is designed to be energy efficient has been rewarded with a Leed Gold certificate. Water efficiency, solid waste recycle, use of local materials is just a few of the areas that have been carefully evaluated within the design in order to produce an environmentally friendly building.
