Designing The Future With Awareness Of The Past
Its architectural and interior design project works carried out by Metex Design Group, Naz City Hotel is located in Dolapdere, the neighbourhood which has gained momentum in becoming the contemporary art, business and tourism center of the city, in the same area with Bilgi University, Dirimart, Arter Contemporary Art Museum and Pilevneli Gallery.
The main design principle of the hotel aims at establishing a multifaceted relationship with the neighbourhood in which it is located, both becoming integrated into the neighbourhood’s renewed contemporary face and being in harmony with its complicated structure without creating any contrast, by taking into consideration the unplanned urbanization and the variety of buildings’ typology in the region.
The front facade of the building consists of square shaped modules of equal sizes, having different lateral surfaces in itself and creating different feelings of depth. The different reflections on every hour of the day according to the angle of the sunlight on these modules with zinc surfaces increase the impact of the targeted movement. In order to pursue the same dynamism in the interior space and strengthen the relationship established with art, the bronze relief works designed specifically for the venue and the sculptural forms following them are in the forefront. In the elegant and comfortable interior space, not far from naturalness, materials such as marble, wood, metal have been predominantly used which results in an impressive match with warm tones. For the hotel with a project area of 7,000 m², a total of 79 rooms of sizes between 30 m2 and 53 m2 have been designed, including 4 deluxe suits, 1 executive senior suit, 70 executive rooms, 1 room for disabled people and 3 junior suits.
