‘Design is a constant challenge to balance comfort with luxury, the practical with the desirable’. Surpassing the aforementioned challenges of design, Ofist elegantly update the Y House to create a modern, harmonious abode. Designed as part of the Mandarin Oriental residence in the Bodrum region of Turkey, the studio tastefully entwines natural materials throughout the house to create an innovative, yet welcoming feel. Wood, iron and stone have been intricately combined to create a warm and natural interior, that makes use of the region’s abundance of materials. With the full-length slate-clad wall anchoring the house to form a motif that runs throughout the project. The whole approach to the property was culturally driven, attempting to establish a clear dialogue between the disconnected architectural model, local customs and geographical context. Consequently, Ofsit aid the design with the help of the clients of Y House who had their own clear vision of trends, fabrics and techniques that they wanted to include in the interior- and so the contemporary style across the build was easy to replicate to match the clients needs and desires. Appeasing the modernist interior is the idyllic sights and sounds of the neighbouring sea which can be seen from all angles of the house courtesy of the large framing windows and balconies.
