The Capoferri Contract Division, in collaboration with the local Landmarks Commission helped to bring this traditional Bosphorus Yali in Beylerbeyi, Istanbul back to life. Originally built around 1850 by Architect Fossati, the all-wood building had been totally destroyed in a fire. In order to maintain the original façade design, Capoferri designed a ventilated façade, complete with hung sash windows, entrances, sunbreaking panels, copings, moldings, columns and parapets – all milled from solid and laminated wood. Being situated on the Bosphorus and thus subject to a marine climate, the wood to be used was carefully selected and only Canadian Red Cedar was used; which in case of the façade had to be strictly quarter-cut. Capoferri also supplied all built-in furniture, the handrails of the impressive main staircase as well as artistic glazing, period furniture and interior doors. Stone works and parquet was provided by trusted partners of Capoferri. Last but not least, the pool house, service building and the grand entrance gate have all been provided by Capoferri.
