Naz City Hotel
Efe Korkut Kurt
In Naz City Hotel design process, artwork is designed to fit perfectly instead of the relief-style on the monoblock wall overlooking the central staircase exit volume. It is designed to give a calm yet elegant feeling in the context of the architectural concept, in harmony with the harsh geometric order that forms the interior.The artworks specially prepared for the corridor crossing areas on the intermediate floors of Naz City Hotel were prepared in line with the hotel design concept. The works have been produced in integration with the historical photographs of the Bomonti Region where the hotel is located.
The main goal for the design of the artworks made for Naz City Hotel is to gain aesthetic value to the interior architecture atmosphere of the hotel. In addition, it is aimed to strengthen the identity value of the space with a unique touch that exceeds the standards of architectural design elements. In addition to the horizontal movements of the interior, spatial quality has been increased with a contemporary relief that covers all floors vertically. The artistic language of the relief between the abstract and the figurative range has increased the perception of the people and the visual interaction with the work. The paintings for the corridors are located in the transition areas. In these paintings, the historical elements of the urban area in which the hotel is located are interpreted in a contemporary language, providing a multiplicity to the identity of the project. The vivid, warm color palette used in the pictures is aimed to create an effect that will increase the sense of belonging of the users.
In this project, the whole process was carried out by moving forward on a common ground as project company owners, interior designer group and ALAN Project design team. Firstly, the design proposions for the project area are developed and then the production of the artworks were started through presentations made to all parties. All the works were produced by our team of artists at our art studios and then installated to their places.
