Project: Sipopo Congress Center
Architect: Tabanlıoğlu Architects
Type: Congress Building
Location: Sipopo/Equatorial Guinea
The Congress Center is situated by the ocean and surrounded by the woods. The lacy texture of the mesh behaves like sun break and grants a shady interior without hindering the accent of transparency, protecting the inner glass walls reduces heat that improves building’s energy efficiency. Double space atrium-lobby grants a feeling of spaciousness, and creates a wide circulation zone. The main conference hall is a rectangular space at the first floor, with a circular seating design, situated amid the structure and accessed through the connecting lobbies at three sides. The restaurant overlooking the bay is at the first floor flanked by the foyer.
