  • Description


    New project!
    I want to build a house in the countryside, and looking for someone to help me drawing the project.


    My house was left abandoned for many years. Needs renovation and refurbishment. I also don t have the furniture any more. It needs to be furnished.
    I would like your help to make it beautiful again.

    The pictures are from my house, from the times I lived there before.

    I lived in different countries. I did workaway myself which were great experiences.

    The area is called Fener / Balat.

    My house is in one of the oldest settlements of Istanbul. The neighbourhood has a rich history. I often take walks and visit mosques, churches, hamams, fountains and libraries from different periods, and also local markets. You re welcome to join.

    Public transport connections are good. You can visit different parts of the city. You can take the boat to the Asian side or to the islands. I would gladly give you recommendations and tips about places to visit.

    There are many museums and galleries that are 15 - 20 min. away by bus.
