Scruffy Dog Creative Group announces collaboration on ‘The new downtown of Istanbul’

International Creative Master planning and Design specialists Scruffy Dog Creative Group are leading the development of the entertainment offering at ‘The New Downtown of Istanbul’ – Tersane Istanbul.

Tersane, a 700-year-old shipyard, is the largest in Turkey. Scruffy Dog Creative Group, in Partnership with FTG Development and The Rixos Group, are working to transform this area (including its iconic slipways) into a mixed-use destination with a focus on recreational and leisure activities, arts and culture, entertainment, and personal enrichment.

Tersane Entertainment District pays tribute to the rich history of The Golden Horn through visionary architecture, material use, and sculptural elements located throughout the shipyard. Within the utopian space under development guests can expect to find everything from panoramic sunset views and water projection shows, to gastronomical delights, exhibition spaces and a variety of art classes.

Scruffy Dog Creative Group are no stranger to the development of cultural destinations having delivered design and build services for a wide range of projects including the culturally significant World of Wine in Porto.

Joe Bright, CEO of Scruffy Dog Creative Group comments: ‘We are delighted that the concept we delivered for Tersane Entertainment District was so well received. To now be moving into the schematic, and detailed development phases of this visionary and culturally significant project is both an honor and greatly exciting for both myself and the team.’
