Along the beautiful coastline of Istanbul Moda, this striking home owned by a mathematician was turned into an industrial-style haven by Slash Architects. What initially was a dark, restricted apartment was transformed into a beautiful open-plan home.
This new home offers plenty of space for the owner, and his daughter who comes to visit once a week. Let’s take a tour around this industrial home filled with stunning inspiration ideas!
Because his apartment was in an old building, the designers were careful to reflect its unique charm. They opted for industrial design elements such as brick walls, and statement lighting pieces.
The owner was fascinated by the unity of the different parts of the room. Thanks to the open plan layout, the common areas of the home look well integrated and also allow the gorgeous balcony view to flood the living areas.
The owner had simple requirements, the first being that he wanted masculine interiors using natural materials such as wood and metal. You can see this played out with furniture and the combination across the floor, walls and ceiling. His additional request was for a working area that connected to the living room; somewhere special he could write his books.
In order to make the different areas of the home accessible, a straight corridor was designed to connect the entrance, the kitchen and the living area. The living area was also visually extended with the installation of reflective surfaces such as glass and mirrors, boosting the accessibility of those gorgeous views.
The kitchen features brick walls and metal hanging shelves that add to the industrial look of the home. There’s even a counter that looks out to the dining room, which keep guests connected to the kitchen and provides plenty of light for cooking and early morning coffee drinking.
Lighting fixtures are also major features of the home, as seen here with this three pronged contemporary chandelier. Also, there’s a good mix of texture in the living space, from metal furniture, to velvet seats.
The openness of the owner’s new home encouraged him to invite his friends over more frequently, and we can see why.
Even while he works on his book, views of the gorgeous vista can inspire him from his workspace.
Another renovation worth noting is the bedroom belonging to the owner’s daughter. The room was originally two small rooms that were combined to make a larger area. The owner wanted the room to have enough space for his 10-year-old daughter to study, relax and play piano. It’s interesting to see that the piano is located against a wall which also provides enough privacy for the sleeping area.
The designers made sure that the bathroom is just as modern as the rest of the home. Here, they installed a jacuzzi and a sauna to the master suite bathroom.
