The Armada Shopping Centre in Ankara has been named as "Europe's Best Shopping Mall in 2004" by the International Council of Shopping Centres, the global trade association of the shopping centre industry. GMW Architects' Istanbul office worked with the concept architects, A-Tasarım. The centre occupies a large island site and is a major gateway building when entering Ankara from the west. On each of the rectangular retail floors, shops have been arranged on either side of a mall that forms a continuous loop connecting the four circular atrium spaces, one at each corner. Each atrium is given a different identity by the use of light and colour.
