Inspiring sobriety T House

Istanbul-based designer, Tanju Özelgin, completed the interior of T House, a gorgeous multi-level residence sited in Bosphorus district. With objects of décor displayed in a museum-like manner, he imagined a stylish dark-toned living space, making use of local forms and materials. The neutral palette of colours, ranging from white/ beige to different hues of grey and sheer black create an astounding visual effect. Space looks modern, yet a little bit gloomy. Despite the excessive use of obscure colours, the interior inspires calmness and elegance. High ceilings, dramatic chandeliers, long curtains and exquisite artwork adorn the living room.

“In this project, Özelgin has used rough stone and raw concrete mixed with polished marble, wood and glass for the interior and sections of the exterior. Also the widespread use of stone surfaces on walls, floors and exterior areas can be considered as an example of the use of local elements. Besides, the use of stonewall panels in the primary living spaces is one of the most important features of the design.” From polished marble tables to futuristic-like sculptures – everything seems to fall into place visually. The overall design appears to be fascinating and intimidating, in the same time.
