Broadway Malyan hunt for staff for booming Turkish outpost
Broadway Malyan has launched a recruitment drive for its Turkey office as part of an ambition to grow it from six staff to more than 30
A 525,000m² mixed-use scheme designed by Broadway Malyan for the town of Sevrantepe was launched to potential tenants last week.
Director Peter Vaughan told the AJ that Turkey was an exciting and rewarding country for architects to work in. He said: ‘We opened an office in Istanbul with the intention of growing it. We would like to have 30 to 40 people.’
‘Turkey is where East meets West and it is home to a fantastic eclectic mix of culture, aspiration and architecture. They are friendly people and they are open to new ideas.’
The Sevrantepe scheme features two 46-storey towers and includes hotel and retail facilities as well as public space.
Its design is inspired by the geography of the site, on the outskirts of the town and adjacent to the countryside, as well as its hillside setting.
‘The level falls 60 m from top to bottom so that presents great challenges and opportunities,’ said Vaughan. ‘Levels are a wonderful thing for architects.’
Eroğlu Property has begun talking to potential tenants of the scheme.
Nurettin Eroğlu, chairman of the Turkish developer, said: ‘We are pleased to debut the scheme on the international stage for the first time and believe it will become a major new landmark in Istanbul.
