The Optimum Outlet in Istanbul brings the outlet concept to the centre of Istanbul. Located in Kadıköy, the heart of the Anatolian side, the design concept symbolises the flow of the Bosphorus Strait of Istanbul facilitating the stream of trade, of communication, of people—the lifeblood of the metropolis.
One of the busiest outlet malls in Turkey, the centre features a contemporary yet classic design aesthetic. The refurbished mall showcases modern shapes to allow customers to have different experiences and perspectives on each level.
Enjoying a dialogue with the outside world, a large glazed skylight and gleaming entries enhance the retail experience. A bespoke food court and leisure facilities, including an entertainment centre, bowling alley, an ice skating rink and an 11-screen movie theatre complex combine to create a destination to encourage repeat visits.
Buchan’s role for the centre refurbishment was concept design through to design development.
