House in Istanbul, A Modern Mixture of Styles

House in Istanbul, A Modern Mixture of Styles

GAD, an architecture company with offices in New York, Istanbul and Bodrum completed an impressive renovation project in Beykoz, a suburb of Istanbul, Turkey. The BUAMA House belongs to a young couple who needed their home restructured. The plan was to insert a new living space in the already existing one. The results are amazing. Here are a few words on the project from the architects: “The new structure maintains the existing heights, yet proposes a more organic solution. The smooth and endless lines reference infinite space, as there is no clear distinction between the floors & walls, or between the walls & ceiling. Light scatters on the organic surface in a way that seems almost limitlessness. The furniture is selectively chosen to unite many different styles.” We think the renovation is daring, original and totally goes with an exotic country like Turkey.

    Liked some of the rounded walls and entry ways. Feels like you would be living in a cave.

    The Flinstones are alive!

    Altough I love the concret in many ways, I think that the furniture color could be less cold on the crowded areas (livingroom, tv room, etc) to make a little contrast with the walls, I mean, the designer tell us about an line endless between the floor and the walls so I think that the furniture and add-ons must be over that line and not between even as a way for integrate it.
