Wilson Associates inspired by Paris, NY and Turkey for Fairmont Quasar Istanbul

The Dallas-based interior design firm incorporated design elements from Turkey.

Dallas-based interior design firm Wilson Associates has completed Fairmont Quasar Istanbul, located in the Mecidiyeköy district of Turkey’s capital.

The Fairmont Quasar Istanbul is part of the Quasar Istanbul complex, which has two 40-story towers that sit atop a four-story office podium. The towers have 209 guestrooms, including 25 suites and 40 Fairmont Gold rooms, with an additional 64 residences. The design project also included the restoration of the historic liquor factory, designed by Robert Mallet-Stevens.

Wilson Associates was reportedly inspired by New York and Paris for much of the interiors, and incorporated design elements from Turkey as well.
