It’s designed to be integrated with the main courthouse of the city, Abide-i Hürriyet Park surrounding the courthouse and the monument in the park. The building aims to get into contact with the city with its south and east façades, and public and park with its north and west façades. It’s designed with technological and ecological concerns. As one reaches the upper floors, the city view opens up with a panorama towards Bosphorus and Golden Horn. The double façade with interior gardens allow natural light and ventilation to have office spaces with up-to-date standards.
