Yalı Han Shopping Center (Kalkan)

This construction is located on the street where the new Kalkan bus station is situated. When completed, it will be the largest commercial building in the town, with 2500m2 of land and 1000m2 of enclosed areas on each level. The construction provides for offices on the first floor and shops on the ground floor, which make it likely to become the focal point of the town. The design for the Yalihan Shopping Centre was inspired by the traditional caravanserai structure.In accordance with this, the large building blocks of the construction have been disposed around an inner garden court. The incorporation of low slanted walls on the façade, columns of different heights and the use of blue shades all evoke different civilisations from Ottoman to Egyptian.
