The GADPark office was designed and built by GAD for their architecture practice in the central Nişantaşı district of Istanbul Turkey in a building that was previously a multi-story urban parking facility. The program called for office space for GAD’s design team that took into consideration GAD’s research-based method of computational design and iterative process of working with models. A focus on research and workshops with members of the separate research group, the GAD Foundation team, extended the program beyond the needs of a conventional architecture office. As a result, an open plan office on two separate floors of the 800m2 office and studio created a single space allowing for interaction and flexibility in spatial planning, a recurring feature in GAD designs, for the practice’s different working methods. Spacious meeting rooms, GADlab, an open shelf library, a large kitchen, and cafeteria provide communal living and working space uniting the practice’s design work in one common area.
