UK-based BDP has revealed details of a shopping and leisure project on the outskirts of Izmir, Turkey’s third largest city.
The firm has produced the masterplan and concept design of the Vaha project for local developer Megapol.
The scheme – which contains over 175,000m2 of retail, leisure, education, social and religious buildings – is dramatically situated at the foot of a range of hills.
BDP is also working with Utopia Entertainment, Los Angeles-based leisure consultants, on the development of a major fun park which will be integrated into the site.
A central external space, overlooked by cafés and restaurants, acts as a natural focal point for the project.
BDP is working with local architect EPIG on the scheme.
