The glass material used for its construction is 6 to 7 mm thick. The material can be specially heated during the winter which is one of the best and most demanded characteristic feature. It is simply awesome to behold and looks like a perfectly cut and polished glass cube from outside with a blue tinge to it. But I really wonder how one could live inside such a building.
One major highlight is the entrance hallway with a 200-pair shoes storage unit which looks absolutely splendid. Nonetheless the other storage shelves and wardrobes are quite admirable too. The terrace of the building is inspired by Parisian style.
The catwalk staircase in the central is the major highlight here. The sitting area and office are on the second floor. The interiors reflect an ultra-modern outlook. Since the couple have baby boy born towards the end of the renovation works baby-proofing elements were also incorporated into the design.
The middle aged couple bought the whole house as two different apartment units and the new combined house has two living rooms with an entrance right in the middle. Dividing the whole space into two major portions is the entrance with the right side assigned for private space. An exotic office space is another attraction. The master bedroom in white color resembles some suite in a big shot hotel while kitchen and the kitchen island on the left side are chic and modern.
The French doors separating the living room from the cooking/dining space were adorned by Sara’s nephews and nieces adding a vivid personal touch. Hanging over the Ellipsebord dining table an Arne Jacobsen’s black pendant light accompanies the couple’s meals.
As you can see everything single thing in this house is made of glass including the floors ceilings as well as the staircases — yes you’re reading it right Even the book cases the tables and the cabinets are made of glass. The only things we could find not being made out of glass are the bed and the fancy couch. Actually the bed frame and the couch frame ARE made of glass but there’s a nice mattress in there to accommodate your body — after all who would want to sleep on glass?!
Decorated with a fine collection of South African accessories the house is also dotted with many antique accessories and paintings from the owners’ collection. Further the awesome abode ensures a splendid view of the city of Istanbul. The sleek design of the will definitely leave you spellbound. The three level apartment of three levels in Sun Valley Idaho has a design just perfect for such a resort town.
