One of my architectural mantras is
"Always work with what you have got".
It's the starting point for any of my design work.
And this property, in Istanbul, showcases that same
philosophy to perfection.
It's the home of the dynamic design duo,
Seyhan Özdemir and Sefer Çağlar.
They are the directors of
studio in Istanbul.
In their own home,
they have worked with the existing brick walls
and sash windows,
using a scale which highlights the
beauty & drama of the space.
The contrast between the imperfect bricks
& the other glossy finishes create
pure magic and dynamism.
A perfect personification of
working with what you got.
