HISTORY

The first of the Balkon Residences’ was salvaged from a 130 year old building in the Galata district. Even before the Ottoman Empire, this area was always the centre of art and trade and its artistic characteristics remains to this day.

The building itself lies on a dead-end street between Istanbul’s landmark Galata tower and the famous Sufi convent, ‘Mevlevihane’ and is one of four architecturally identical structures that were once constructed.
The project was endorsed by four siblings and their families were the original inhabitants of the establishments.
During renovation, special attention was paid to conserve the building’s original architectural elements such as the distinctive wrought iron balcony railings of Galatian decor and the remarkable door which remains untouched.

In 2007, the renewal duration was initiated and finally after the necessary procedures were concluded, renovation began in 2010 and was completed in 2011. The second Balkon Residence is currently under construction and will be open for service as of 2012.
