Habif Architects have designed a new house for a family in Istanbul, Turkey, that has a weathered steel garden wall, a concrete-stone mixed facade, and an interior filled with wood accents.
Inside, wood has been used to create a warm and inviting living space. In the entryway hallway, dark walls contrast the wood flooring, while track lighting highlights artwork.
Heading back outside, the poolhouse, which has a green roof, has been designed to accommodate a living space, kitchenette, outdoor lounge, gym, changing room and toilet.
At the end of the hallway, steps with hidden lighting lead down to the living room. The living room looks out towards to the backyard, and a large bookshelf has been built-into the wall.
On the pool terrace, there’s an outdoor dining area and outdoor living room that both look out over the swimming pool, backyard and pool house.
A sculptural oak staircase has been created to link the three levels of the home. The wood stairs have a natural oiled finish, which adds warmth to the interior, while the handrail has been varnished in black.
Here’s a look at the changing room that has a long wood vanity and tall mirrors that meet the ceiling.
