High in the hills above 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, consists of 5 units on twenty acres.
“The fundamental concept was to define the single home unit strictly inside of a square, repeat it 5 occasions within the plot and then leave the rest of the web site to nature itself,” the architects stated. A terrace and swimming pool shaded by a bamboo canopy are the trademarks of every single villa.
Traditional stone walls root the dwellings into the hillside, while wooden decks and huge glass walls inspire a contemporary truly feel. Every single house also has its personal garden.
The lounge, bedrooms and bathrooms within each and every villa are person blocks connected via inner hallways. A massive living area, featuring eclectic accents and linked to the deck, acts as the social core of the resort villas.
Sustainable features incorporate thick stone walls that supply thermal insulation, bamboo shelters that further assist to hold the interiors amazing, and semi-open circulation areas for organic ventilation. [Photography by Cemal Emden]
