Worldwide headquarters for Avrupa ve Amerika, the 125,000 square foot Holding Building houses executive offices, television studios, an art gallery, a restaurant, a landscaped terrace, and an exposition center.

The design is based on the notion of an open and minimal set of elements and spaces, carefully organized to provide clarity and flexibility of use. The floors become a series of continuous and overlapping spaces, employing light and material to suggest greater potential beyond the limits of room borders and programmatic boundaries.
