Barry Callebaut Offices & Chocolate Academy – Istanbul

A colorful and awe-inspiring space, the Barry Callebaut offices in Istanbul capture the essence, elegance and deliciousness of their most important product — chocolate.

  • Client Barry Callebaut,
  • size 11,302 sqft
  • Year 2018
  • Location Istanbul, Turkey,
  • Industry Food / Beverage,
  • Studio 13 Architects have completed the design for the Barry Callebaut offices and Chocolate Academy, located in Istanbul, Turkey.

    Inspired by Barry Callebaut rich heritage and “company’s personality” design oscillated around chocolate characteristics. Instead of concentrating on many brands and their guidelines we decided to focus on most important – chocolate!

    We tried to create environment that would fit the variety of products that Barry Callebaut and its family companies spoil us every day. Delicious colors, inspiring shapes, elegant treats – are abstracted to create chic architectural environment for the office.

    Chocolate Academy as an important part of the project is designed in a way that every guest could admire its magic while entering Barry Callebaut Istanbul. Focused on the most efficient layout for the workshop, hygienic environment with bright colors was designed.
