Although 5 whole years have passed over this renovation ,every moment of it stays in my memory quite vividly as it was a very special Project in many ways.

*****************************************************


 First of all, it was a great beginning of a client architect relationship that has come to last till now with a total of 13 projects so far.
Another reason that made this renovation particularly special was the history of the building which dates back to the early 1900s.

With a past of over 100 years, the BRAUNSTEİN apartment had its share of aging. The challange was to design the first office of a very young and famous blogger in such an old space.
------------------------------------------------------
Although the client was the mere reflection of youth and energy, she believed in the aura of the past.That is why, the main idea was to balance the old and new  by mixing significant old structural details with new and easy to use materials.The process began by tearing apart useless layers to bring about the main historic elements.
The cratfsmanship of the brick walls and vaulted ceilings was striking.

The initial
Goal was to design an eye catching entry with a dynamic character.
The colors and materials were selected together with Buse Terim,the blogger herself.
The focus was to have the energy in the center and have everything radiate from it with bits and surprises in small bundles.

Peeling the old floorings which have been layered through the years required a great deal of time and energy.Once this challenge was complete,clear epoxy was hand poured on to the bare concrete floor.

All the original doors and windows were kept and restored with minor handling and paint.Only the kitchen door was replaced with a glass door , dressed with custom designed macaroon stickers.

The old hexagon window glass was all broken so we decided to have colorful pieces of glass made by a local glasswork studio specializing in antique pieces.Painting the vaulted ceilings all white after tearing down chips and old paint expressed the charming structure and resulted in a higher feeling space.

---No matter the size, I believe, a renovation job that is true to the characteristic architecture is always intriguing, so it was a job worth all the hard work!!!---

MILAN DESIGN FAIR-EUROLUCE 2017 HIGHLIGHTS

The month of April feels like a new year for the design culture as it is that time of year when all trends are set in the Milan design fair.

Everyone rushes in from all around the world to witness what's new and upcoming .

The fair becomes the talk of town with the global visitors and designers.

This year was magnificent as always with the biennale of Euroluce-the lighting event that runs every other year.In fact, I felt that lighting design was the star of the show this season with the cutting-edge LED technology.

If you ask me what was particularly trending, I have to point out the Flexible and Mobile products that can easily be adjusted and eco friendly modular systems.

I have particularly noticed the repeated use of Random forms and natural shapes. For instance,Altura Alvarez had a fixture like a bird nest and it was so cute and stylish at the same time. Bocci also had dream like organic designs shaped with the glass blowing technique.
