DDG’s scope of services included the architecture, graphics, landscape, lighting, interior design for Maltepe. Many structural parameters were in place when the developer approached DDG to help design Maltepe after the Owner and original architect had reached the end of schematic design. In fact, the site was already being excavated when DDG started working on the project. DDG designed the mall component concurrent with local architect preparing construction drawings for the rest of the project. DDG was selected for our expertise with designing award-winning shopping centers in Turkey and for our use of color drawings/renderings that more clearly communicate during the design phases.
DDG evaluated the existing concept design drawings for the mall and made recommendations to improve the design. These recommendations were explored in six concept options for the podium space and three full interior design schemes.
