29 is located in Ulus, one of the most popular neighborhoods of Istanbul. This 1250m² restaurant that maintains its intensely green texture, is designed by Zeynep Fadıllıoğlu Design and all measurements and estimations, measured drawings of the project and all application and construction processes were carried out by YOO Architecture.
Interior architecture design of the space was built around the venue’s dynamics of function and clientele profile. The focus point in the project was to create a venue with more comfortable and active spatial features offering a more dynamic, appealing, safe and diversified space to the visitors compared to its former state. In line with this, as YOO Architecture we carried out a very intensive work in determining the materials to be used in the application process, and selecting the furniture for the area.
In the project 29, a different concept is planned for each corner and accordingly each concept was applied by carefully bringing together different materials and details. 29 is designed as two sections: a restaurant and a night club. These two sections are separated by an acoustic wall embodying special details and the passage in between sections is enabled through a smart glass system. After a certain time of the day, this glass becomes transparent and invites the guests to the club section. By using mainly glass on the facade surfaces, it was aimed to create the perception of a spacious atmosphere and this holistic mood is completed with the terrace extension.
The night club section of the venue is completely renovated. The renovated area offers a unique music experience to its guests thanks to the venue’s high acoustic insulation and the special acoustic ceiling. The restaurant has three sections; Winter Garden, Blue Room and Lounge. Also at the center of the venue, there is the Show Kitchen surrounded by a bar and a wine cellar.
Different materials were used and detailed solutions were created for each corner. Wine cellar and wall fittings used in the indoor space are custom made for the venue and the walls were covered with special wall papers and installed with brass and mesh coating applied wood panels. Custom made wine cellar provides the climatization required to guarantee optimum conditions. The wine cellar creating the desired visual harmony with its shelves is put into service of the guests as part of the design.
Marbles used in wet areas are carefully laid paying attention to the successive patterns. Make-up room provided as part of the ladies’ room is an exclusive space with hand-crafted and tailor made lighting fixtures used. Many special parts manufactured for the project like timber lining, built-in furniture are completed with us. The interior architecture of this venue is designed with many custom manufactured parts and the entire roof insulation and structure is renovated. YOO Architecture has completed the coordination of the project, including all electrical and mechanical systems, in 5 months.
