When Hyatt International purchased the 84 year old Macka Palace in Istanbul, they wanted to give the building a modern update while preserving the historic charm of the building. Novum was contracted to design and install a facade wall and canopy at the hotel entrance and a glass atrium over the lobby. From the onset of the project, Novum engineers were diligent in obtaining precise site measurements in order to provide geometric solutions to fit the given space. With the help of Novum, Hyatt was able to preserve the historic building while creating an addition with a welcoming, modern aesthetic.
