A+ Shopping Center in Atakoy, İstanbul will provide 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.
GAD’s architectural strategy works with the building’s facade. The building’s facade performs as a variation of alternating surfaces. The facade responses differently based on north, south, east and west coordinates. 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.
