Richard Meier Does Modern Architecture In Turkey. The Bodrum Houses.
Yalikavak, overlooking the Agean Sea, is the most prestigious residential area in Bodrum, Turkey. In 2006, Berggruen holdings purchased over 168,000 sq/m of land with panoramic views of Yalıkavak Bay and the marina. They then hired world renowned architect Richard Meier to design a series of modern homes for the hillside. The project, called “Bodrum Houses” is comprised of 23 houses designed in 5 different design styles.
Each of the Richard Meier designed homes has 3 levels in addition to the pool area, a canpoied 3 car garage and a detached guesthouse. Each house contains a kitchen, living room, dining room and powder room on the ground floor; three bedrooms on the upper floor; and a media room, laundry room and three staff bedrooms on the basement level.
Each house has a total exterior and interior of approximately 1,100 square meters and each house has a separate pool, emergency power generator and a waste water treatment plant.
Materials are cast in place concrete with a plaster finish and large areas of glazing. The interiors feature stone and hardwood flooring and numerous skylights.
Due to different typographical features of each plot as seen below on the models, each house (including the same design type) has a unique ground level configuration and an uninterrupted view of Yalikavak bay.
