High in the hills over Turkey’s Bodrum Peninsula, these charming resort villas blend in with their surroundings. The Gumus Su Villas project, a collaboration between Cirakoglu Architects and Demirden Design and style, consists of 5 units on 20 acres.
“The simple idea was to define the single home unit strictly within a square, repeat it 5 times inside of the plot and then leave the rest of the web site to nature itself,” the architects mentioned. A terrace and swimming pool shaded by a bamboo canopy are the trademarks of each villa.
Standard stone walls root the dwellings into the hillside, although wooden decks and big glass walls inspire a modern feel. Every residence also has its personal garden.
The lounge, bedrooms and bathrooms within each and every villa are person blocks connected through inner hallways. A massive residing location, featuring eclectic accents and linked to the deck, acts as the social core of the resort villas.
Sustainable features incorporate thick stone walls that give thermal insulation, bamboo shelters that further help to preserve the interiors great, and semi-open circulation locations for organic ventilation. [Photography by Cemal Emden]
