I recently completed the interior of no.21 Hair Design Studio in Istanbul.
The studio situated in Nişantaşı, a lovely neighborhood with a lot of nice shops and cafes. It is on the first floor of a historic building. The antique windows and doors, high ceiling, wooden floors and the otherworldly light during the daytime are the things that impressed me the most and guided my design approach.
The idea behind the project was creating a really soft and calm interior, where people get together, share ideas, have chats and get inspired. İbrahim mostly works for fashion shootings and fashion shows. So besides hosting his customers, his intention with this studio was also doing hair rehearsals, meetings and simply working/experimenting. So I created many areas for socializing like the long wooden table in the main room, the library area with the chairs in front, and the balcony that faces the courtyard with the beautiful trees.
I mostly used wooden, glass and concrete as a material. And left the walls clean and white to get most of the daylight.
-All the furniture and the lightings are designed by me as well.-
