Entry Description

Adres Yalıkavak, stands in the seaside resort of Yalikavak in Bodrum, the most popular leisure site of Turkey, is a multiple residence project consisted of 43 villas and social buildings. Since the project’s main aim was to create a residential project that integrates itself respectfully with its surroundings, AdresYalıkavak should be evaluated as contemporary interpretation of vernacular Bodrum Housing. Although Bodrum is generally thought as a location for summerhouses, it is aimed to create an all-year-long lively campus that meets any needs for its occupants. Since Bodrum is known with its traditional vernacular architecture, AdresYalıkavak addresses local building elements both rough and fine natural stones. Every housing is situated according to landscape so that each of them has a very exclusive panoramic seaside setting without an interruption by one other block. Project’s selected layout is totally pedestrian friendly. There is no interruption of driveways, hidden underground levels thanks to the terraced settling of houses.
