Situated along the coast of the Aegean Sea in Turkey’s southwestern province of carefully sited amid the natural rugged views.The design uses the natural contours of the site to create a low-rise building that appears as a single storey structure on approach.

The site is accessed from the north, with a curving road that leads to the drop-off for the villa. The house is embedded within a beautiful Mediterranean garden that offers a multisensory experience with fragrant plants such as thyme and lavender alongside rich seasonal planting and mature olive trees.

The main entrance takes you directly to the heart of the villa with the private family quarters to the eastern side, orientated to respond to the contours of the site, and the public living and dining areas to the west, with exceptional views of the setting sun over the Aegean.

房屋采用了手工制作的木结构屋顶，是Foster + Partners事务所与瑞士公司Blumer Lehmann共同设计完成的。屋顶形态起伏流畅，此外，预制的精密结构所含碳量比典型的混凝土屋顶要少得多，因此更为生态环保。坚固的橡木横梁由钢柱承重，支撑起7.5m的悬臂结构，为室外提供了宽敞的阴影空间，并为后院遮挡了阴凉。
The house features a handcrafted undulating structural timber roof, designed in conjunction with Swiss firm Blumer Lehmann. The prefabricated and precision-engineered structure contains substantially less carbon than a typical concrete roof. The solid structural oak beams rest on steel columns, supporting a large 7.5m cantilever, providing generous outdoor shaded spaces and cool shaded courtyards to the rear.

The journey through the villa is from ‘opaque to open’, reflecting the differing levels of privacy throughout and the design seeks to blur the boundaries between inside and outside living, with the large glass doors along the façade that slide back completely providing an unobstructed flow of space between the interior and exterior spaces.

The central feature stair that connects the two levels is made from solid Portuguese limestone and is supported through post-tensioned cables running through the stone with no other visible supports. Preserving the purity of the staircase and offering a feeling of lightness, the balustrades are made from thin glass tubes with a timber handrail that has been bent and shaped on site.

Inspired by the villa’s immediate surroundings, the natural interior material palette consists of stone, wood and bronze and features various tones of warm browns and greys found throughout the rocky outcrops and sandy beaches of the site. The choice of oak joinery and leather furnishings provides a relaxed, elegant feel to the coastal retreat. Reflecting the high levels of craftsmanship in the design, each element has been designed to respond to the specific requirements of the client – from hand-carved solid timber doors to bespoke ceramic tiles and basin in the bathrooms.
