Istanbul, the most highly populated city in Turkey and a centre for culture and trade can look back over a rich history. The city has a legacy combining Greek-Roman antiquity, medieval Byzantine architecture and that of contemporary, modern Turkey. In the heart of this city, characterised by a wealth of different traditions, the ultra-modern and futuristic Medicana Ataşehir Hospital has been built.

From the lobby to the rooms for patients and doctors, the premises are designed to make a pleasant stay in hospital possible, one that promotes the healing process. The LIVA and LOOP metal ceilings fit perfectly into the overall concept. In the entrance and waiting area, the bronzecoloured LIVA ceiling is a fine sight to behold. With its baffles arranged multi-directionally, and with a free cross-section of more than 95 %, it creates an open and homogeneous ceiling look. Specifically for this project, LIVA was supplied with a special design that is installed below the plasterboard ceiling and which totally conceals the ceiling void from the onlooker.

In other areas, the acoustically optimised LOOP design of ceiling with PUNTEO-J60 LED spots provides an elegant, seamless look and an atmosphere that promotes a sense of well-being.

The vision, design and function have been adapted perfectly to suit the needs of patients. Thishas helped to create a trailblazing hospital, one that will play an important role in Turkey.
