A three-storey building situated 30 km. west of Alanya, consisting of 52 shops of various sizes, spaces for cafes, teahouses and restaurants, offices, and an open-air cinema. A reinforced concrete column and beam system constitutes the structure of the building, and an assortment of pastel colours were chosen for the building's facades. In order to counter the effects of typically hot summers and rainy winters, natural ventilation and an internal central landscaped area provide visitors with shade and shelter from extreme weather conditions.
