If impeccable details, clean lines and consistent shades are your thing – White House by Ofist is a place you would adore calling home. Nestled in a bustling neighborhood of Istanbul, this delightful space is actually an apartment that sits on the top floor of a century old historical building that has been beautifully brought back to life.
Upon seeing the original space, the owner fell in love with the amazing view of the Bosphorus and the old city, and made it her mission to recreate it into a home encased in reams of white and natural light.
Set with oak parquet and wood lath ceilings painted white throughout the apartment, along with iron framed windows to maximize the view, it is the slim metal staircase with leaf cutouts that sets the stage for this home, which graces the main living area and leads up to the rooftop terrace – where an unencumbered, breathtaking view can be found.
Set to the side of the main living area is a grey and white brushed marble wall, inset with white metal shelves, and is host to a cast iron fireplace.
White is the name of the game with varying shades of grey also found in the furnishing and interior, including the master bedroom, which offers a balcony delivering yet another worthwhile view.
The bathroom delivers a round shower and a wooden bathtub that extends onto the sink space as well, creating an eye-catching allure to a room often overlooked. Undoubtedly, this home is as fresh as they come, and proves what can be done with the right “point of view”.
