A marketplace is typical for most Turkish city districts. They provide a point of cohesion for the community, acting as an economic hub, a landmark, and an impromptu park. In the rapidly developing Sultangazi district of Istanbul, however, such a public place has yet to be seen. To remedy this, Suyabatmaz Demirel Architects have recently proposed a combination market hall and car park for the middle of this populous residential area.

The terraced structure will hold adequate space for vendors during market days and, like most other market places, will provide parking space for the remainder of the week. In such a dense urban area, the building will rise vertically from the site, which may seem counter-intuitive for such a pedestrian-heavy venue. The architects have compensated for this by designing the vehicle ramps between terraces at a gentle 8% incline, easily walkable for most individuals. The building also has set access points along the main street, not only to direct foot traffic on market days, but to control vehicle access during its use as a car park.

In making this design a focal point for the community, the market hall and car park will have an enclosed public area that will host space for social events, as well as educational and administrative facilities. The top floor of the building will have a café and an observation deck, as well as a vegetated area to combat the severe lack of public parks and other green spaces in the district.
