Located in Erenkoy, a peaceful neighborhood of Kadikoy, a cosmopolitan district on the Asian side of Istanbul, and named after Chaceldon, the ancient Greek maritime town that thrived on the same location, Khalkedon House is a two-floor recently refurbished penthouse that combines a modernized, mid-century sense of style with a contemporary sensibility of comfort and elegance.
Designed by the Turkish multi-disciplinary design studio ESCAPEFORMA, the four-bedroom 250-square meter apartment spreads out on two floors, with living spaces and bedrooms on both levels, and a spacious terrace on the upper floor offering amazing views of the city.
The interiors have a warm, welcoming atmosphere through the use of Iroko hardwood for the floors, perfectly balanced with a toned down palette of whites and grays for the walls, carpets, and fabrics.
Designed with a minimalist approach, filled with simple lines and clean surfaces, the rooms are complemented by the use of Italian marble and polished brass.
The apartment’s decor is one of mid-century modernism, exemplified by the custom made furniture of polished wood, marble and brass, together with classic pieces. Other elements that reminisce back to that era are the slatted timber, paneling cladding the kitchen and staircase volumes, and the custom designed wallpaper on the back of the sitting area, depicting tropical foliage and flowers, both rendered in contemporary, sober terms with the former painted dark gray.
The living room opens up onto a spacious L-shaped terrace, accommodating a comfortable lounge and dining area. With an elegant palette of grays, whites and baby blues, it is the ideal place to sit and enjoy the panoramic view of the city and the Sea of Marmara beyond.
