Architect: Definespace Architects

The project is located in a tourist town on the Aegean coast, in Turkey. Thanks to its topography, fauna, flora and its summer-time atmosphere, natural tranquillity reigns over the site. The permit authorisation request consists in developing around 40 villas (two different types) in this unique location.
The pure architectural lines blending natural and modern materials will enhance this place’s beauty. The inspiration behind the architecture ranges from a yacht’s pulpit to the fluttering wing of a butterfly. High and low tides are represented by the upper, cantilevered swimming pool and the indoor swimming pool on the ground floor.
The project has a total of 442 m2of covered areas and 300 m2 of terraces with, a garden surrounding the building. The power required for the buildings will be provided by solar panels placed on top of the wings. The Kusadasi villas with their summer-time maritime architecture will soon flutter their wings in the town’s urban fabric and will win over the hearts of its citizens.
