A hundred year old apartment building in Istanbul’s crowded neighborhood
Kurtulus underwent a major renovation by preserving historic shell and floor
slabs intact. New touch to building is kept as invisible as possible yet adding
the new simple, fresh aura to spaces. Original brick load bearing walls, cast
iron beams were exposed after a careful surface cleaning. Light pastel colors are
applied to most other walls to help strengthen the idea of flow of loft-like spaces
to each other.
