Year

2003

800 m² of rental space in an Istanbul high-rise was transformed into a spacious working environment that evokes the materials, workmanship, and landscapes of Switzerland.

The government of Switzerland aquired an 800 square meter area in an Istanbul high-rise, for which the architects were commissioned to do the design, contracting, and finish work. The brief was to plan for the offices, meeting rooms, and public counters of various consular departments, as well as to accomodate public visitors to the visa office, which number more than 200.000 per year.

Step into the Swiss Consulate Generale in Istanbul, where design transcends mere aesthetics to become a captivating narrative of Switzerland’s landscape and the intricate artistry of wood craftsmanship. Every detail within these walls has been thoughtfully curated, weaving a tapestry that harmonizes with the breathtaking scenery of Switzerland.

As you enter, the doors stand as the first testament to this meticulous design. Crafted with precision, they reflect the sturdy elegance of Swiss architecture, perhaps reminiscent of the robust mountainous landscapes that define the Swiss countryside. Each door, a portal to diplomatic engagements, echoes the resilience and strength found in Switzerland’s natural terrain.

Look upward, and the ceiling becomes a canvas portraying the vastness of the Swiss sky. Inspired by the celestial beauty that graces the Alpine region, the ceiling design invites you to gaze upward and feel a connection to the open skies above the Swiss landscapes. Its subtle intricacies mirror the play of clouds over snow-capped peaks, creating an ethereal ambiance.

The walls are adorned with a symphony of textures and hues, mirroring Switzerland’s diverse landscapes. From the serene blues reflecting its pristine lakes to the warm earthy tones reminiscent of the rolling hills, every color palette tells a story. Swiss precision meets artistic expression in the choice of materials, creating an atmosphere that mirrors the varied geography of the country.

Furniture, meticulously selected and arranged, is a testament to Swiss craftsmanship. Each piece carries the legacy of centuries-old woodworking traditions, showcasing not just functionality but also the artistry of handcrafted design. Every chair and table resonates with the soul of Switzerland, where precision and craftsmanship converge to create timeless pieces.

The lighting design casts a warm glow, reminiscent of the golden hues that dance upon the Swiss landscapes during sunset. Whether it’s the pendant lights inspired by traditional Swiss lanterns or the strategically placed fixtures echoing the soft glow of alpenglow, the lighting scheme is a choreography that transforms the consulate into a welcoming haven.

In this interior design masterpiece, the Swiss Consulate Generale in Istanbul becomes a living tribute to Switzerland’s natural beauty and the unparalleled skill of its artisans. It’s not just a diplomatic space; it’s a poetic expression where every element, from the doors to the furniture, weaves a narrative inspired by the landscapes and wood craftsmanship of Switzerland. Welcome to a consulate that transcends borders, embracing the spirit of two nations in every meticulously crafted detail.
