How to transform a flat with custom-made furniture

In Istanbul, a bespoke flat by COA Mimarlık to fit the contemporary lifestyle of a young couple

An open and bright living room designed with colours creates a fresh and contemporary space

Custom-made furniture is quite helpful if you have just married and want to modernise your old home and make it better suited to your new life together. COA Mimarlık, a young, Istanbul-based architecture firm, used tailor-made design to renovate a flat in Beşiktaş, a residential neighbourhood in the European section of the city, shaping the home to fit the habits and needs of the newlyweds.

 

The flat had a series of doors lined along a narrow hallway, creating dark and narrow rooms that no longer befitted a contemporary lifestyle. The renovation project maintained just the strictly necessary walls and doors, opening and widening the existing rooms and breathing new life into them.

 

 

All wall units are custom-made furnishings made up of modular components with simple geometries. They are decorated with graphic elements like the abstract world map printed on the living room’s cabinets.

The TV cabinet and the custom-made bookcases of the office are made of flexible structures. They combine with coloured shelves and drawers that can be assembled at will to afford the household residents total freedom of use.

The new rooms are ample and bright. Here, white predominates, alongside light-coloured wood elements, to which are juxtaposed small chromatic touches. In every room are details drawn in different colours; for instance, light blue was used in the lounge to give a sensation of peace, whereas in the office are discordant colours, like yellow and black, to give the space a dynamic feel.

The bedroom is characterised by a warm light gray that creates a relaxing atmosphere. The kitchen, on the other hand, is mostly white, for a feeling of cleanliness and tidiness, with wall cupboards — featuring linear and simple geometric designs — in which are slotted modules in light-coloured, unpolished wood.
