Design and layout
Istinye Park has a gross area of 242.000 sqm.
There are three distinct sections present in the building:
- The Grand Rotunda is a central entertainment space, consisting of a four level arena-like space beneath a scalloped/segmented shell. It is supported by a central exterior mast over 3 panoramic elevators. The 75-meter-diameter hard-shell canopy encloses a 9 m diameter vertically moving stage. The Rotunda also features kinetic water sculptures animated with lights and music.
- The Lifestyle Center is an open air town square incorporating a green central park and Fashion District- the glass roofed indoor retail area.
- The Bazaar area is distinguished from the rest of the center with its historical Turkish styling- each facade has been inspired by Turkish architecture and history.
The project designer is Development Design Group Inc., based in Baltimore. The design period -from conceptual, schematic, to development- lasted for about a year. Ömerler Mimarlik, based in Istanbul, drafted construction drawings and handled implementation. The construction period went on for 26 months- from the first lay of foundation until the grand opening. From the first sketch to the completion of the project, it took (2004–2007) 3 years in total.
City buses number 29, 29B, 29P, 29S, 40B, 42, EL1, EL2 provides access to the center.
- Funtime, the kids’ entertainment center is around 1,500 sqm.
