Project Description

DDG is served as the master Istinye Park architect, creating in Istanbul, Turkey a vibrant new retail and entertainment destination situated above a natural topographical “amphitheater” of master-planned mid-rise residential neighborhoods.

The Istinye Park architecture consists of three conceptually and architecturally distinct elements – a grand central entertainment rotunda, an open-air lifestyle center and a glass-roofed indoor retail area – combined into one multifaceted omnicenter.

Master-planned on over 13 hectares, Istinye Park encompasses roughly 82,000 square meters of retail, restaurants and entertainment venues serviced by four levels of sub-grade parking – nearly 4,000 spaces – with available valet service. Istinye Park offers something truly special: a spectacular array of retail and entertainment possibilities in a unique urban lifestyle environment — Istanbul’s first true contemporary gathering space.
