gold souQ of BBS Mall 

Investors of BBS MALL, which will be the largest shopping center in East Africa, aim to offer different shopping experiences to their visitors in the BBS Mall. The project is located in Nairobi, the capital city of Kenya. It has been requested by the investors to design an elegant space in accordance with the content of gold and precious stones to be sold in these shops. It is envisaged that the shops in a part of the BBS shopping center will be built as a gold and jewelery area by the investor. It is thought that these shops will be different from other shops in terms of both interior design and common areas. Gold Souk main hall is designed with a barrisol light between the 4 columns which are in the middle of the gold souk hall to emphasize midpoint as a seating lounge. It is designed as a resting and spending area for women who will shop between 4 structural columns.


Gold is a valuable commodity that has been constantly bought and sold since history. It does not have a 200-300-year history like today's currencies. The history of gold spans thousands of years since ancient Egypt. The use of arches in architecture has a history of thousands of years. The arch system, which is one of the most suitable methods for passing the gap between columns, is frequently encountered in palaces and historical bridges. In order to connect with gold, the main product to be sold, in terms of historical life, shop fronts are designed with arches. Storefronts are designed as different from other storefronts as arches. Each arches are combined with vertical box profiles and lighting to each other as one space.

Within the BBS Mall, there will be approximately 30 shops selling only gold as a gold souq. The design concept of the shops here is considered according to the product they sell. Gold is mined underground as a mineral. There is gold at a depth of hundreds of meters underground in a completely unlit environment. The gold, which is located under the light environment in the shops, is actually found underground in a completely black room for centuries. In reference to this underground extraction of gold, the interior of the store was designed entirely in a black tone. Black marble and black velvet, burgundy velvet textiles were used on the walls. With this dark background, it has already come to the fore as a gold product. Since it was thought that 3 people would work in the store at the same time, it was tried to gain as much counter space as possible by designing angle stall shape to create more efficient using on customer's side
