​A city within a city

With 25 million visitors a year and a turnover of €500m, Forum Istanbul is one of the largest shopping centres in Europe.  It sits at the crossroads of two important motorways, a metro line, and the largest regional bus station, in the Bayrampasa area of the city.

At 495,000m² of total construction area, 175,000m² of rentable space and 265 national and international brands represented, Forum Istanbul is larger than Westfield, London.

Narrow lanes and boulevards

Boulevards lead to piazzas and public squares. Streets give long views of monumental buildings. Narrow lanes cast shadows on courtyards. All the spatial qualities of a city within a city. 

Chapman Taylor developed the exterior and interior design based on a concept prepared by T+T Design and BDP, assisting on site during its execution.
