Architectural Concept Design

Natural light, visual connections and privacy are the three elements which define an architecture were a classic element such as the Iberian patio and the Turkish Taşlık play together to define the rules of communication between indoor and outdoor life.
We has created a concept for a residential complex on a panoramic slope near by the small town of Assos, Turkey. The main element of the spatial organization is a central pedestrian walkway along with are mirrored two lines of five villas each. The pedestrian access of each villa is guaranteed by the Taşlık: a semiprivate space which allows communication between indoor and outdoor life. The high level of privacy requested by the client determined the relation between villas; the visual connections are balanced by the use of boundary stonewalls, hierarchy of openings, blind facades and screens. Villas have two storeys: day area on the ground floor and night area on the first floor. The double height void of an inner patio connects both floors and gives secondary lighting to domestic spaces.
