Villa With Bosporus Views

Istanbul, Turkey

The concept reflects on the apartments locality alongside the Bosphorus in Istanbul. Inspiration was taken from the light and water and sited the plan to maximise access to views from all points. All core materials were sourced locally to create a neutral background against which art could be set. This gives the apartment a gallery aesthetic, with functional elements such as the kitchen island and stairway screen a sculptural feel. The open plan is divided into different functions to breakdown the continuous space.
