Y House by Ofist

Ofist as Interior Architects

In some places on earth there’s not enough ground to hold on and get inspired of when designing, but Bodrum is definitely not one of those places. Ignoring the rich culture and geographical context, the local values, materials and architectural approaches, Mandarin Oriental’s architectural design came up with an accustomed modern design dwelling which can blend in any modern city like Los Angeles, Sydney or Dubai, but not in Bodrum.


Y. House is situated in this dwelling of Mandarin Oriental Residences in Golkoy, Bodrum.

During all the design process it was also interesting to feel the difference between the fast consuming fashion design and the long lead architectural design. It was exciting to connect the trendy pieces, colors, ideas with our more settled approaches which are kind of trying to stay away from trends. And also finding out that they are somehow insepperable or unavoidable...
