Foreign Office. Meydan Shopping Square. Istanbul. Turkey

The Umraniye retail development aims to perform not just as a proficient retail complex but as a true urban centre for the future development of one of the fastest growing areas in Istanbul. The building anticipates through its geometry and circulation strategy its subsequent integration into a dense inner city context aiming to formulate an alternative prototype to the usual out-oftown retail box development. The provision of underground car parking is a major part of this strategy, liberating substantial amount of ground floor space to be used for landscaped areas and a new urban square in the centre of the scheme. The central square is activated though a number of new pedestrian routes, linking the underground car park to the ground level and accessible from the wider city context though two new routes across the roofscape.
