Project Description

Istinye Park consists of three conceptually and architecturally distinct elements – a grand central entertainment rotunda, an open-air lifestyle center and a 3-level glass-roofed indoor retail area. Supported by a central exterior mast and suspension cables, a 100-meter-diameter hard-shell canopy encloses the Grand Rotunda, a dramatic arena-like space beneath the scalloped, segmented roof structure. LED screens, choreographed and sound lightshows and classic materials of marble, terrazzo and stone accented by glass and water come together to fashion the contemporary interpretation of a traditional Turkish market.
