This incubation center design project belongs to Bilisim Vadisi technopark complex in Muallimköy – Gebze, which is also is be the biggest incubator center of Turkey. Besides mainly having flexible working zones, the main facility is also supported by the social activities, multipurpose education room, game room and library.
The main design concept of this Incubation Center had been created in order to encourage to users’ thinking as more free and innovative way. Accordingly some various spaces which all has got different themes were created under only one shell structure. This shell form which also dominates the whole space, creates these spaces by somewhere raising up and lower down. Additionally there is an egg form structure is placed in the middle of the space which was emphasized from the idea of incubator itself. The social activities that support the whole space such as cafeteria, game room, multipurpose room are placed inside this egg.
The usage of classical work station order was deliberately avoided for the interior design arrangement of this Incubation Center which is suitable for especially Y generation users. Instead of having classical working zones, various different spaces which have sport, game, music, picnic and popular culture themes were designed in order to trigger the creative and innovative ideas.
In general sense, the main conceptual criteria for this Incubation Center of Bilisim Vadisi was determined to be designed according to the company identity, field of business and user profile. Consequently our aim is to give the sense of belonging to this space for users and visitors.
