Throughout their existence, people have felt the need for gathering places for various reasons. In the changing world order, eating-drinking, socializing and shopping habits have also changed. Therefore, a need for shopping emerged, and initially, the barter system was used, followed by the use of money. Throughout history, different shopping venues have been established to meet people's shopping needs, and over time, these have evolved into the enclosed shopping malls that we see today. In their current form, shopping malls have become centers for social, cultural, dining, working, and entertainment activities. With these functional areas, businesses have started to aim to keep visitors in the space for longer periods. Precisely for this reason, shopping malls need to maintain the highest standards in design criteria. This study has been prepared to potentially provide an answer to this issue. In this thesis, the positioning of stores has been considered not only in plan but also in three dimensions and in terms of transparency and opacity, and the necessity of high store perceptibility has been addressed. In other words, the study focuses on the relationship between the intensity of spatial elements in design and the resulting visibility values. During the research, the observation method was preferred to determine visitor movement in the selected shopping mall. To examine the physical characteristics of the shopping mall, spatial syntax analysis, which posits a direct relationship between the space and its users, and helps to understand and numerically interpret the relationship between space and social life, was used. Based on all the data obtained at the end of the study, the usage values of spatial elements in the interior design processes for shopping spaces were discussed. It is believed that the results obtained from the study will serve as a guiding manual for shopping malls that will be designed in the future.
