This is a great contemporary update with a singular artistic vision and design aesthetic. We love that the old bones and features of this historic building have been allowed to shine alongside the subtle enhancements. With breathtaking views of Istanbul and the Bosphorus, you’ll feel the appreciation of history and design in one great penthouse.
Restored and designed by the owner to honor the traditional artistic Turkish craftsmanship and culture, there is a unification of old and new here that is dramatic and expressive.
The graceful original architecture of this 19th century building, along with industrial metal accents, rough wood plank floors and old exposed brick walls create a rustic yet modern loft environment.
Vertical and bright, the space has been elevated further with a spiral stair that ascends into the skyline from the main living area. Surrounded by floor to ceiling windows, the apex of the building is flooded with natural light and opens out to terraces that afford spectacular views of the city and the Marmara Sea.
Furnished with unique and original designs created by the owner and several local artisans, the contemporary furnishings and decor harmonize seamlessly with the more rustic and muted elements.
With one full master suite, private en suite bath, and fully equipped gourmet kitchen, the penthouse is ideal for two and allows for complete privacy and escape in an otherwise bustling and densely vibrant city.
This is the rare find that is equal parts history and modern artistry that represents a new and inspiring emergence of contemporary Turkish culture and from where you’ll enjoy the drama and beauty of a fascinating city.
Concierge and housekeeping services included. Wifi, Flat Screen TV, audio and music system. Personal care products and all linens included. Books and games available. Security system and 24 hour on call service.
Close to the the vibrant nightlife of Beyoglu and just five minutes away from the ancient landmarks of Sultanahmet and other major sights, the penthouse is ideally situated on a quiet street in Galata with great local shops and dining but in close proximity to all that this city has to offer. It’s a short twenty minute walk to the center of the old city.
