A+ Shopping Center in Atakoy, İstanbul provides a contemporary and alternate option to the shopping experience. The new center takes advantage of its urban location and injects the area with a larger sense of urban renewal.
The building’s facade is a composition of alternating surfaces. The facade responses differently based on North, South, East and West orientations. The urban fabric on these coordinates also varies from residential, commercial, to urban infrastructure. The project’s program is arranged to actively engage both the customers and merchants with a diverse and modern shopping experience.
