Contrasting room concepts, materials and colors. A new bank building in Istanbul draws its aesthetic power from this exciting basic concept. The Türkiye Finans Participation Bank is located in this 33-storey structure. The combination of natural materials such as stone and timber, coupled with the timeless wall, ceiling and lighting solutions from durlum creates a fascinating and multi-faceted design.

As soon as employees of this bank enter the building through the employee entrance, they are welcomed by the bright light of the PUNTEO®-Y225 hybrid spotlights with their deflecting mirrors. With the help of mirror deflection technology, light can be directed precisely at the intended area. The deflecting mirror is an eye-catching item in its own right. There is a call centre on the next floor up, and several training facilities. The ceiling-lighting combination, comprising custombuilt raft ceilings with integrated OMEGA 100 lighting channels is responsible for the great looks and acoustics.

The extensive executive management floors exude a striking contrast of natural materials and timeless RHOMBOS expanded metal ceilings and wall claddings. In corridors, in meeting rooms and offices and in the atrium, these elements create a stylish backdrop and a seamless transition between walls and ceilings. The triangular expanded metal elements in the meeting rooms serve two functions. They act both as a ceiling and as a transition to the gallery above them. This gallery area also benefits from the acoustically absorbent inserts.
