Europe's largest flat glass producer Şişecam’s flat glass products were preferred in the Folkart Ardıç Residence project in Çeşme/İzmir. Şişecam Temperable Solar Control Low-E Glass Neutral 62/44 product was used in the project that the residence block’s form is shaped by the idea of protecting the juniper trees on the site.
The project designed by Dilekci Mimarlik / DDA is one of the reference projects brought to life with the innovative products of Şişecam Flat Glass that pioneers many firsts in the field of flat glass, and leads the development of the flat glass industry in Turkey and the region.
The high light transmittance, heat insulation and solar control requested in the project are provided by a single coating that is "Şişecam Temperable Solar Control Low-E Glass Neutral 62/44" product.
Folkart Ardıç Residence is located in Çeşme, Izmir. The general design layout is created with the principle of preserving the juniper trees in the middle of the residential area. Also, juniper trees determine the form by diminishing the structure massively. The fragmentation of the mass effect the building’s appereance in the silhouette making the structure to be perceived as smaller.
The curvilinear parapets are designed with a geometry that cuts the visual relationship between the floors. The fluid geometric movements are trying to capture a formal continuity with the topographical morphology of the site.
