Gaziantep Prime Mall Shopping Center

Erginoglu & Calislar as Architects

Located slightly off the center of Gaziantep, a city replete with history, traditions, culinary arts, and shopping culture, Prime Mall is built upon an approximate area of 83,000 square meters. As it rapidly develops, the city of Gaziantep expands through the increasing number of settlements in its periphery and the new subway lines connecting them. The mall building is located along a line of public service buildings such as a university and children’s hospital in this developing region. The mall is, in fact, conceived as part of a master plan alongside a housing project in a property owned by the client and located immediately behind the mall building. While the said master plan has not been fully implemented, the project is designed in a manner that provides direct access from the mall to the housing complex. Providing access from various points and levels of the mall to maximize circulation inside the building has been one of the primary objectives of the design. The two entrances in the front facing Necmettin Erbakan Boulevard are monumental in size -in proportion with the building’s scale- and are intentionally designed to be “alluring.”
