212 istanbul - power outlet in collaboration with db Mimarlik, Istanbul / Bünyamin Derman
The new Shopping Mall 212 istanbul - power outlet creates 70,000m² of prime retail space in the heart of the rapidly developing Istanbul media district. The development includes two fifty-story high-rise apartment buildings offering a total of 125,000m² usable floor space. The design concept divides the total building mass into bands of differing width. The irregularly folded roofs are designed as green roof-gardens open to the public. The Shopping Center offers large-area retail spaces like a supermarket and a home improvement retailer as well as small shops and upscale boutiques, a multiplex cinema, food-courts and various family entertainment facilities. The complex interior is organized as a “city within the city” creating a complete shopping experience for the visitor – not just a series of retail outlets. Large media screens project random samples of the vibrant interior life to the outside.
