Project Site Area:
Located in the new Istinye Park mall complex in Istanbul, the Hillside City Club is a state of the arts sports facility. While offering the latest in physical and mental training, the club also provides guests with other amenities such as; a café, restaurant, shops, bookstore, spa and a traditional hamam. This all encompassing service philosophy is a trademark for the Hillside Company.
Architecturally, the programmatic organization of the complex is arranged around various ‘social nodes’ intended as areas for social mixing and interaction. Additionally, the architects design objective was to create variation with spatial volumes throughout the complex. The ‘social nodes’ and ‘spatial volumes’ offer an architecturally diverse environment to supplement the various activities and services taking place at Hillside.
