ÇEKMEKÖY HOUSING COMPOUND NO: 2 - Istanbul

In the very beginning of 2002 the client asked us to prepare a design for a land located on the main road to Çekmeköy, one of the new residential regions of Istanbul. The area has a sloping topography starting from the road to the east boundry of the site, which is surrounded by a forest.

The housing compound is composed of 14 villas with typical plans, each 3 storey and 330 m2 closed area. Our cause of concern was not to show the villas as three story, so the plan was set back at the staircase axis and developed in accordance with the existing slope. All the living spaces are directed to the forest view and lots of open and closed living alternatives were created in the plan.

Club building, administration, closed swimming pool, tennis court, technical buildings are the auxiliary facilities of the project.
