Construction is steadily progressing on DDG’s latest project in Turkey, Bahçeşehir Park. Characterized by its high visibility, ease of regional access, and strategic gateway location into nearby luxury residential neighborhoods, the mixed-use project will include three residential towers and retail shops.
We believe in designing authentic places, walkable communities, sustainable landscapes, and graphic excellence, while harmoniously integrating residential, retail, office and hospitality uses. Understanding of context and respecting local culture are equally important for us in creating innovative solutions while employing lessons learned from the most successful places around the globe.
Our design for Bahçeşehir Park embodies our design philosophy. We created five distinct zones and experiences: the “Public Park,” a family-oriented, heavily landscaped gathering space which anchors the lifestyle center; the “Central Plaza,” an upscale shopping environment with branded retail facades and a feature restaurant on an inviting plaza environment; the “Shopping Street,” which connects to the Central Plaza via an outdoor pedestrian promenade lined with restaurants and boutiques; “Outdoor Dining Terraces,” presenting dramatic views of the Bahçeşehir Park gardens; and the “Covered Retail,” featuring a below street-level gourmet grocery store, food hall, retail, and cafes.
DDG is responsible for planning, architecture, logo, signage, landscape, and lighting for Bahçeşehir Park. The architectural character of the entire project is envisioned by DDG as California contemporary, inspired by modern and period styles while embracing current trends in retail exterior façade expression.
