İpera 25 / Alataş Architecture & Consulting. Located in the historic and protected district of Istanbul’s Galata, Ipera is a 10 flat building that goes beyond the conventional codes of the area. To describe it simply, the building is constructed around two blind walls made of fine concrete and a glass façade and wooden shell that cover the fully transparent living quarters.
This is a real favorite of mine in concept: We use fold doors all along the kitchen counter and they open to porch where we place either a counter or counter-level narrow table and add stools for guests (who normally get in way hanging around kitchen island). It is a level pass-through as well and effectively adds counter space to kitchen. (COOL!)
