Ferko’s latest project, Ferko Signature has been brought to life in Levent, Istanbul. Having started construction in 2015 and occupying 50 thousand square meters on 30 floors, the building bears the signature of world-renowned architect Lord Norman Foster. Ferko Vice Chairperson Gökçe Meriçten underscores the central location of Ferko Signature and states that its architecture, services, and the new arts platform it houses, Ferko Art, all contribute to the privileged office experience Ferko Signature provides. Further commenting that they developed the project based on the idea of creating an office space that exudes the comfort and warmth of a hotel, Meriçten also highlights Assembly’s unique position in the Turkish business world as the branded office administration system of Ferko Signature.
OFFICE ADMINISTRATION SYSTEM
Yiğit Şatıroğlu, one of the founding partners of Assembly Buildings, states that they aim to operate Ferko Signature similar to a hotel administration.
Assembly has created eating and drinking areas, meeting rooms, activity areas, sleeping room, co-working and ready-to-use office spaces within the Signature and will offer services including concierge, assistant, catering and IT services.
Seyhan Özdemir, founding partner of Autoban, the name behind the interior architecture of the building, stresses that many office buildings are being built only as leasable spaces for investment but not much more. According to Özdemir, “With its unique architectural approach, Ferko Signature has brought new meaning to the concept of office building.”
NEW ADDRESS FOR FAMOUS BRANDS
Following Yemeksepeti‘s move to Ferko Signature in October, many famous brands have relocated to the building. Fiba Holding, McKinsey, Franklin Templeton, AHK, Sarten, Destek Finans, White&Case, MESS Lidyana, and Boyden are among the many businesses that have chosen Ferko Signature as their new offices.
ART “EN MASSE?”
Designed as an office space intertwined with art, Ferko Signature’s entrance features world-renowned sculptor Tony Cragg’s ”Must Be”, the largest Cragg work in exhibition in Turkey. The lobby of the building is home to media artist Refik Anadol’s ”Wind of Istanbul”, the first data painting of Turkey, designed exclusively for Ferko Signature. Ferko Art, meanwhile, aims to establish a link between local and international cultural and artistic communities.
