Paragon Tower

Ankara - Turkey - 2013
CW 50-SC Façades - Business center Paragon Tower located in Ankara, Turkey

Look at the Paragon Tower, then look again. Its rising prism shape might surprise you at first, but that is exactly the point. Designed by Gokhan Aksoy, this office building stands out thanks to bespoke ConceptWall 50 façade solutions. And thanks to its sustainable building elements, the Paragon is nominated for a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver certification. An eco-friendly meeting place in this recently developed area of Ankara, Turkey.

The Paragon Tower is as much a working environment as it is a social hotspot. 27 storeys of office space occupy the largest part of the building, with semi-open “floor gardens” on the seventh and 17th floor for employees to enjoy. But architect Gokhan Aksoy also provided room for cafés, social services, and restaurants, making local visitors interact with the site as well. Business and leisure come together at the courtyard on the ground floor, where you can rest in the shade of a large canopy. As a visitor, you feel tempted to take a seat and marvel at the Tower’s surprising design all day long.

In a dense city centre, you have to make use of your limited floor area as efficiently as possible. Paragon Tower’s tall and slanted design is the perfect solution.

Notice from the outside how the Paragon’s floor space becomes smaller towards the top floor. This dynamic, asymmetric design gives the Tower its recognisable prism shape. But irregular shapes require equally irregular solutions, not in the least when cladding a skyscraper’s unconventional façade. Fortunately, Reynaers Aluminium’s custom-made systems can fit any project’s needs.

Although the Paragon Tower catches your attention immediately, you will notice it does not reflect the sunlight as much as its neighbours. That is because its façade consists of custom versions of our ConceptWall 50 curtain wall solutions. These variants carry coated glass panels, which keep the panes’ glare at an absolute minimum. Anodised aluminium cladding further gives the office building a matte and elegant look. In this way, although its surroundings are beautifully reflected in the façade, the Tower will not hurt your eyes when staring at it.
