Skyland Tower

Year: 2016

Skyland Towers, the tallest buildings in Istanbul (284 m), are mixed-use skyscrapers located at the Seyrantepe neighbourhood, Sisli district in Istanbul, Turkey. Designer of the buildings is Peter Vaughan from Broadway Malyan Architects. These 65-storey towers, besides their iconic architecture, are offering services including 830 residences, 504 office spaces, 300 rooms, a 550-seat conference hall and a five-star international hotel.

The scope of archlum´s work was the supply of  luminaires in public areas for general lighting purposes.


Concept Design

The archlum team approach any project specification by studying three aspects:

  • The ambient mood
  • The accent
  • The task lighting

An understanding of those aspects is needed for defining a degree of design freedom which allow us to specify optimal lighting solutions.

If no existing solution is available, each project may have partially or full customisation.


Fitting Development

At the stage of technical fitting development, the archlum team goes through an application study, whereby electro-mechanical, optical, thermal challenges are solved with respect to project architecture and interior design.

On high complexity projects, archlum prefers to collaborate with established industry leaders such as Bartenbach GmbH, with whom we have been cooperating for many years on both levels of projects design as well as special fittings developments



At the end of the lighting contract journey, the archlum team concludes the spec-to-build developed BOQ progressing to the next stage of manufacturing.

We coordinate the activity of our suppliers and subcontractors, focusing our attention on product quality control.

Once products are produced, they are gathered in our warehouse in Swansea UK and they await shipping to our customers.
