Part Two: From Shelters to Residences
Architecture has always been a dynamic phenomenon throughout history; it has always changed and re-functioned according to the requirements of its time. Architecture, which in ancient times had only the function of creating a shelter, has become more than that over time, and has continued its accumulation by constantly acquiring new meanings and functions. Architecture has started to go beyond responding only to the basic need for shelter, and has merged with art and aesthetics. In a world that does not stop developing and changing, individuals have continued to live by adapting to all innovations in the transition from our single-storey houses to residences, from village lives to metropolitan lives.
Tending towards the Minimal and the Practical
In homes, which have become more artistic than a shelter over time, the speed of city life has begun to lead people to new searches, to prefer more minimal and more practical living spaces. In this way, houses that have turned from shelters to residences have become minimalized and practical.
Since people do not want to spend their limited time with daily laborious work while reflecting their personal tastes in their own space, large and difficult houses have started to give way to more minimal and functional homes.
At this point, an asset gainiing different functions with its change over time is called Retrofit.
Functional and minimal decoration suggestions;
You can save space by choosing a bench that can stand under the table when not in use instead of a chair at your dining tables.
You can feel the nature in your home with Taurus Oak, which has soft wood details, while making the environment look uncluttered and spacious with light colors such as cream and beige that you will use indoors.
By choosing retractable desks, we can remove the clutter in the environment when we are not working. You can add depth to the environment by choosing high gloss White Cashmere for your cabinet doors.
In your spaces where matte decors and wooden decors are combined, you can create natural and comfortable spaces by using natural rugs in light colors that do not take up much space.
