Yunus Kandemir: This is what I dream of living "Silence". What winter brings away from the noise of life and loneliness. While creating the visualization, I designed a contrastingly warm space, influenced by the nature and cold of the view.

Fatma Çetin: I designed a calm area on the facade that dominates the view. The processed part of 55 m² area is a bedroom. I kept the glass windows as wide as possible in order to have the whole view. The design with dark colors was enlivened by lighting and accessories.
