Location: Istanbul, Turkey
Just a two-hour drive from Istanbul, you will find a magical place surrounded by majestic mountains and pristine forest where water sparkles in springs. This is where Vedat Bayrak built his family the retreat of his dreams.
Alper Nemli, Kontio’s reseller in Turkey, highlighted the environmental friendliness of log houses and exhibited Kontio’s exquisite expertise in architecture and interior design. Vedat decided to pick Kontio as his partner when visiting Finland.
“When I visited Kontio’s headquarters and their factory in Pudasjärvi in northern Finland, I just knew Kontio was the one. I was introduced to log production, Kontio’s first-class competence and the top-notch technology behind their processes,” Vedat explains.
On the hillside site, a main building and guest house were designed according to Kontio’s Högsåra collection. A local architect and interior designer participated in designing the project. The buildings have many custom-made pieces of furniture. The harmony of colours and special details accent the decor. The light-coloured walls and ceiling as well as the wooden floor provide a beautiful backdrop for the design. It is wonderful to relax in the peaceful atmosphere created by the harmonious shades of wood and brown of the interior.
Pleased with the successful project, Vedat is already gazing into the future: “Our next dream is to build another Högsåra-style holiday residence on our family’s lands in the Black Sea region.”
Wood structure and light tones bring warmth to light interiors.
