Karakoy Loft by Ofist

Karakoy Loft 2

While I try to keep my posts to those associated with California, I couldn’t help but share this jaw-dropping loft designed by Ofist. Located in the heart of Istanbul, the Karakoy Loft is a 180-square-meter (or 1,938 square feet for us Americans) penthouse owned by 45 year old bachelor that houses a natural, comfortable, and practical feel. The residence’s home was designed to cater to the client’s outdoor personality despitebeing located in the center of the hip and active old neighborhood.

To provide additional natural lighting and a view of the mezzanine, the front façade were enlarged and the new folding window frames slide the width of the building to transform the living room into a balcony. The overall design was kept as simple as possible since its layout was designed for a single person’s use. Standout design features of the home include a storage system comprised of iron rods climbing two floors and running the length of the house, a natural stone-covered floor, a floating staircase, a continuous ceiling of Iroko wood, a beautiful fireplace, and much more.
