Sevil Peach, who has been working together with Brigitte Weber on the interior design concept of the Kanyon residences, aims to create an open concept, based on the idea of creating a living area where dreams meet reality. The idea is to free the living space from all unnecessary barriers, including walls and doors, resulting in a spacious and warmer interior.
"Kanyon is a special place where people can feel free, safe and refreshed. Just like the general structure of Kanyon, the interior design of the residences features smart, and at the same time comfortable, functional details. This world, and the inner space we designed, brings colour and diversity to life."
Brigitte Weber, who has been working together with Sevil Peach on the Interior Design concept of the Kanyon residences, adheres to the Bauhaus school which follows the motto that "If there is no functionality, esthetics and decoration lose their meanings. "This design concept frees kitchens and bathrooms from being merely isolated sections of a house, and makes them indispensable and integrated parts of a home.
"Kanyon has very dramatic architecture. It was my primary source of inspiration while working on the interior decoration. An aesthetically pleasing and magnificent building it is embraced by greenery and natural forms, terraces and gardens, located in the heart of the city. We designed Kanyon’s residences using colours found in nature and natural materials. Our interiors aspire to the creation of a world where people feel independent and special without abandoning the urban concept."
