The Rock
Archi-Europe - Belgium - third prize
3rd Prize - Marmomacc International Architecture and Design Competition 2012 / Archi-Europe - Belgium & Veronafiere - Italy. // The restaurant building is planned as a dramatic landmark for the urban design project in Odemis-Turkey. Defining the main square and the ceremony space proposed for the city, the restaurant is structured through a rock metaphor. The building mimics a rock rising from the ground and is shaped according to the natural and the artificial environment. The restaurant draws a sharp boundary with the main square, cantilevering over the lower square and the neighboring landscape. The contrast between the black slate finishing on the fa├žade and the red colored interior complements the dramatic effect and makes the building more inviting.
