Work With What You Got!

 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.
