Description

The concrete building is covered with an additional façade composed of a steel grid with elliptical shape on which the membrane and the ETFE elements are anchored too. TENSAFORM has chosen for this second skin the colourful micro-climatic membrane Stamisol FT 381 (Serge Ferrari) and ETFE (NOWOFLON). The main goal of the cladding system is to give an extraordinary expression and a dazzling effect to the rather ordinary concrete building. Thanks to its mesh covered façade with the colours of the team, the Vakıfbank Sports Palace is acting as a landmark. Secondary the membrane facade provides shade and protects the building from regional climate changes.

Consoles anchored in the concrete wall of the main building support the additional frame. This steel grid follows the elliptical shape of the façade. To optimise the view no diagonal bars are provided in the section with an ETFE finishing.
