The villa has been designed in an existing housing compound of a family in Çamlica at the Asian part of Istanbul. Our design is three storey including basement and as a result of the slope, two elevations of the basement floor are exposed. The program of the house includes living, dining, kitchen and tv rooms on the ground floor, three bedrooms, family and study rooms and two bathrooms on the first floor and a turkish bath, sauna, guest suit and technical rooms at the basement floor. The garden around the house is at several different levels and the guest suit has a private entrance from the basement level, which is connected to the road by outdoor stairs.

Elevations of the building were finished with composite system of external termal insulation and all the window jambs and floor profiling were made of GRC. The roof covering is of Ottomon type clay bricks and the rain collection system is of copper.
