Industrial revolution: Istanbul’s latest concept boutique sets up shop in a converted garage
Istanbul’s newest and most talked about concept boutique isn’t to be found within the city’s polished shopping malls or well-heeled shopping streets. Instead, the recently opened Sanayi 313 can be found in a converted car repair shop in Atatürk Oto Sanayi, an industrial estate in the north east of the city.
Dreamt up by two brothers, interior architect Enis Karavil and entrepreneur Amir Karavil, alongside long-time friend and fashion designer Serena Uziyel, Sanayi 313 opened in 2015 with the aim of creating a lifestyle destination for those with a passion for modern design, fashion, art and food.
While furniture, home and fashion accessories sit alongside a restaurant serving up healthy cuisine on the ground floor, the building’s upstairs plays host to the offices of Sanayi 313 Architects and Atelier.
The architectural design service and a design studio is headed up by Enis Karavil, who creates the brand’s limited-edition furniture collections. Having completed interiors projects in locations including London, New York, Istanbul, Riyadh and Doha, Karavil’s studio specialises in the refurbishment and customisation of vintage and antique furniture.
Meanwhile, the Atelier is run by Uziyel, whose Italian-honed shoe-making skills have gained her international acclaim. Uziyel’s collections offer up a range of handmade shoes and bags, which aim to blend modern design aesthetics with traditional craftsmanship. Outside of Istanbul, Sanayi 313 Atelier’s collections are stocked in the UK, Italy, Denmark, Germany, Ukraine, USA, China, Japan, Korea, Dubai, Kuwait and Qatar.
For those wishing to linger in the space a little longer, the ground floor restaurant and patisserie, helmed by chef Müge Ergül, serves up breakfast and lunch to the store’s shoppers, while dinner is reserved for private parties only.
