Görkem Volkan Design Studio has been specialized in providing architectural & interior design and project consultation services since it has been founded in Istanbul in 2006. As GVDS, in all the projects that we participate, our top priority is to successfully provide the services of design, project coordination, on-site monitoring of the application and production processes, interdisciplinary coordination, quantity survey and preparation of bidding documents through a coordinated teamwork between the client and the architect . While we believe that design has an essential role to play in building corporate style and brand, in our projects, we successfully present options that best fit the client, the users and the environmental factors. As architects and designers, we are aware of our responsibility to create high performance, healthy and functional spaces that accommodates direct interaction among people.We aim to manage the short and long term scheduling requirements and the priorities of the clients in each project, in compliance with the designated factors. We believe that, in all phases of concept design, project creation, application and controlling processes, success can be achieved by becoming a good team player and we hold efficient teamwork in high regard, knowing how much value it adds to any project. As GVDS, in architectural design and interior design fields, we have successfully managed the design, application and coordination projects for Accommodation, Office and Retail spaces, having completed more than 800.000 m2 of covered area in total.

“While being able to foresee the change is important, it still seems quite unlikely that a concept created 10 years ago can endure the changing trends. This provides the architects and designers  with the liberty of creating  transformable and transportable spaces.

While this transition is obviously easier and more possible in the field of interior design, in the field of architectural design, it also becomes apparent that this kind of transition will soon play its part on the operational and occupational process of shopping malls as the demand shifts towards this concept when we consider the change in the proportion of leasable areas vs. circulation spaces, conversion of indoor spaces into terraces or addition of more terrace areas.

“STARCITY OUTLET CENTER, interior design and frontal renovation of which we manage, stands as a very good example of this phenomenon. This project with its abundant green and open areas, semipublic squares/courts will be able to provide for a significant part of the future demand for both operational and occupational use in its area as the demand rises and changes in the years ahead.
