From the architect. Situated on the bare slopes of Bodrum Peninsula, the initial awareness arose during the first site visit; that the extensive, wildly beautiful views towards the Mediterranean unfolded following the contour lines of the topography.

This lead us create a settlement in the form of a giant open air theatre, where each level following the curve of the slopes constituted a continuous retaining wall out of stone. The detached houses are aligned along these walls, resting on them in a rythm as if single storey structures.

In fact each is a two floor house, the bedrooms burried in the retaining walls. This is a layout where the program of the house opens up to a multi layered garden system: Lower garden for the bedrooms, upper garden for the living.

Upstairs, it is only a frame suspended in air, projecting towards the Mediterranean. The eye reads the topographical movements clearly following the continuous line of stone walls, curving as the slopes do, one over the other. As the levels escalate uphill, the houses watch the spectacle without visual interruption.

This is another project that proofs that simple, yet smart layouts with clean modern lines can be very attractive and successful.
And it is playing with the existing environment, contour lines, local materials and colours in a very nice way. Well done!

With the first pic I thought it was a cemetery.

too simple yet too nice..!

It is one of the numerous Turkish Mediterranean coast projects designed by Teget for Novron, a developer firm. An examplary client-architect relationship that has resulted in such crisp buildings. I hope that the other ones will be uploaded here as well.

Interesting project. It has an easy to read design and floorplan... should be comfortable for the user. The architects made good use of the location by creating some nice prospect and refuge possibilities. I also like the high level of control the users have over their environment - good transitions from public to private and several different levels of privacy within the dwelling.
