CTHB Law Office by Salon Architects, Istanbul – Turkey

June 8th, 2014 by retail design blog

CT Law Office is a refurbished space inside an office building that is structured within a repetitive standard building grid. The interior formation, however, challenges this rigid grid to create a tension between the linear and nonlinear.

The corridor behaves as a transitional zone between the lawyers and the clients. This longitudinal space divides the service spaces from offices and then end with the management room. The colors and materials distinguish the surfaces by their use. As the dark gray zone clusters the service functions, the wooden surfaces cover storage spaces.

The slim linear lighting on the ceiling guides the visitors between the spaces that are organized hierarchically in terms of their use. Lighting fixtures are specifically designed to align the tectonic of the design language. Depending on the viewers’ perception the folded metal plate is on one hand is a horizontal line and on the other hand a nonorthographic object like the mathematical conception of referential relationships, covariance.

All the forms are meaningful at dynamic perspectives rather than certain angels which are hard to represent in two dimensional representation mediums that needs to be spatially experienced. CT Law Office located inside a very conventional orthogonal office building structure represents the inherent qualities of the law institution with its nonlinear yet unbiased and strong tectonics. The tensions between the orthodox rectangular volumes and the oblique surfaces as well as the contrast between cold and warm materials also embody the occupant’s intrinsic values of their profession.
