ISTANBUL | Şan City

Şan City

Architect | Location

LOCATION:
The site is situated on the previous location of the famous San theatre, which has now disappeared; at the heart of the centre of Istanbul, nearby Taksim, Harbiye and Nisantasi, which are the main prestigious retail areas of the city.

DESCRIPTION:
The project is conceived as an innovative mixed complex with retail, cultural, hotel and office functions.
This development distinguishes itself from other mixed complexes by its specific theme dedicated to fashion and developed in partnership with renowned brands , by its organic, fully modular architecture, that can be adapted to the evolving needs defined by brands. Further typical features of the project are embodied by the presence of a public cultural function (new theatre), the creation of event areas, restaurants and a spa with a rooftop swimming pool surrounded by gardens and offering a panoramic view on Istanbul.
The altitude difference characterising the site allows for the creation of three half buried levels of retail areas and of 6 underground parking levels with room for more than 1600 vehicles.

The block was surrounded by short 1-3 floor buildings and in the middle it had an theater which was closed years ago.
They have now demolished most things that aren't historical and I think the style of project is based on the only high building, the one in the north-east corner:

And I guess/hope they will have bars here

Outstanding! A sense of neighborhood will return quickly. Of course, you will have to have bundle of lirasi, but regardless, this project, IMO, will be cited long after some of the vertical office parks will be forgotten.
