This apartment has small dimensions but it gets an awesome benefit from its large terrace with stunning views over the city. It is on the top floor of an already very tall building. The use has been eased and enhanced by tearing the existing windows to the floor of the apartment. All social areas are composed of the dining and living room while the open kitchen is placed next to the main facade.

Because of some sliding doors retract to the apartment wall, when they are opened, the living room of the apartment can extend to the terrace. There is an office with a large bookshelf, a bathroom for common use, a small bedroom with a folding bed disguised in the wardrobes, and also a suite where the bathroom is concealed by a loose volume. This volume doesn’t touch the designed ceiling.

By applying the white self-leveling floor throughout the apartment, all spaces in this apartment can be unified easily. This way also strengthens the diffusion and the reflection of natural lighting to the interior. This apartment is also designed by keeping the white color except for the bathroom where beautiful green hexagonal glass mosaic is applied on the ceiling, walls, and floors.
