The axis of the Eskişehir-Konya roads transforms this area of Ankara into the city’s most rapidly developing and valuable part. This north-south & west-east intersection point on the main transportation arteries has at the same time developed into an urban space where not only the business world and social life meet at this center, but also attracts people as a new and trendy residential area.

The design of the Next Level is inspired by its strategic location and reflects the region’s vigorous development and active life in the general layout and the facade of its buildings.

The task to move the Czech Promotion communication agency in a mere three months from the famous Winternitz Villa by Adolf Loos to the unreconstructed premises of Karlín Palace with its own, albeit not as famous, history seemed fatuous, even naïve at first. Yet it was the time pressure which shaped the design itself, as well as the method of collaboration with the client and contractors. Purely a concept specified and defined the start of the process, leading to the overall unified vision, which prevented any subsequent disagreements or delaying discussions over individual parts of the proposal.
