KALKAN VILLAS

Kalkan Altes Villas are nearly completed.

The Altes Villas are made of up 6 special units that are located on a distinctive hillside with an impressive sea view in the Ortaalan district of Kalkan, Turkey. The natural beauty and the unique texture of the site were the main sources of inspiration during the design process. With a pure and simple architectural language, the buildings are aimed to integrate three dimensionally with the topography of the site. Each villa is positioned so as not to obstruct the sea view of the other. Each villa is composed of two retaining walls that form a living space on the ground floor and a white box that contains the bedrooms that faces towards the sea above the living space. The plan layout enables all of the living spaces to have a view of the sea.  Once you enter the villa's main entrance on the second floor of three-story unit, the sea view welcomes you. There is also a bedroom located on this floor. The elevator that is provided as an alternative form of circulation to the stairs, provides comfortable circulation for users of all ages. The kitchen and two-story-high living space on the lower level completely open up to an infinity pool and the sea view.

Reflections off of the stained glass of the skylights shine upon the exposed concrete walls of the living space giving color to the space and signaling the motion of the sun through the day. The orange colored film of the transparent handrails of the galleries emphasizes the visual relationship between the floors.

Considered one of the regions great resources, the healing thermal waters of Sorgun are highlighted in this project. Using the existing thermal waters, a program that encourages health tourism will be added to the project; thus contributing to  the economic development of Sorgun.

The project includes many functions such as a thermal hotel/spa, housing, social facilities and outdoor sports fields, a festival area, a city park with walking areas and children's playground, an artificial lake, and a solar energy field. Wooden arcade elements that are integrated throughout the site by following the slope of the land create a relationship between each of the different programmatic elements of the project.

By increasing energy savings through the use of innovative and environmentally friendly architectural elements and methods, the project is intended to be economically efficient in the long term.
