FNN Sustainability Center

FNN Sustainability Center was designed within Tekfen Construction’s Machine Maintenance Facilities in Ceyhan for archive, museum and administrative office use. In the project area, which also includes a steel manufacturing workshop, the main purpose was to highlight the steel, which forms the structural system of the building, as a design element. The multi-purpose metal perforated shell that completely surrounds the building is aimed to create inner gardens and green areas by changing the distances between the interior building. The shell also prevented the building from being directly exposed to sunlight, creating a more comfortable working environment in office spaces. By creating a green courtyard in the inner building, which includes archive, office and exhibition areas, a green transition and air circulation was provided between all spaces. While the building inside the shell was designed as a green roof, a green environment was created for the working areas. This green area has also been transformed into a versatile space designed with seating areas that can be used for invitations and celebrations. While providing all these, the FNN Sustainability Center has been awarded the LEED Platinum Certificate with its ability to generate 45% of the energy used in the building with landscape area uses, plant selection, lighting design and photovoltaic panels.
