Erginoglu & Calislar Architects - House ’Ö’

Erginoglu & Calislar Architects
House ’Ö’

World Architecture News have a great post on a Turkish house that caught my eye this week.

//Additional images -

This house has a great layout, the kitchen is open plan on the ground floor and the bedroom is upstairs. The Toilets, up and down are housed in one block separated by a glass surrounded stairwell from the kitchen and bedroom respectively. The living room and fireplace are at the far end on a mid level, giving the feeling of a cozy elevated nook. All overlooking the pool that separates the house from the surrounding views. I love the use of raw local rocks, capped with white concrete. More interior shots can be found after the jump, showing the opening wall in the bedroom that overlooks the kitchen.

From their site:
House ’Ö’ is located in one of Bodrum’s popular holiday districts, Yalıkavak. The design aims to offer a modern life style approach whilst remaining in keeping with the geography and the scenery of the area. Great importance has been placed on minimising any changes in the topography of the land. And this is borne out through the sitting of the swimming pool between the house and the garden. The building consists of three stone units connected by two clear units. Vision is enhanced through the use of clear glass connectors between units. The interconnectivity and use of light permits the feeling of a single, spacious living area. No separating walls are used within the living space. Instead, using intelligent interior design and appropriate furniture, distinct living areas are created within an open ‘whole’.

Stunning. The stone walls are just gorgeous.

BTW, Discovered your blog now (through Arkinetia's blog) and it's wonderful! I love residential architecture and am ecstatic to find someone posting all about it.

Thanks Blackbird,

I appreciate the feedback.

Have since added some additional images showing the layout of the house.

I hope to keep bringing new residential design to everyone, and get more global if possible.

Let me know if you can think/link of any great Greek modern residential architects.

Thanks again, Nick

Unfortunately I personally think quality modern residential architecture is somewhat lacking in Greece (or it's just really hard to find) but I've got these 2 links so far.

There are a couple of gorgeous homes here and it's interesting to look through the different styles.

Vardas Studio
Basically the only portfolio I've got bookmarked at the moment. Whether the architects are great are not is up to you!

Portelet House - BAS MooArc

Guernsey Beach Villa - The Portlet House is one of many fantastic works on Guernsey by BAS MooArc - Minimalist style creating a welcoming beach retreat...more

Well after a huge hiatus, I though I would post this gem to rekindle the spirits as Christmas approaches. After a quick catch up on Facebook Jamie Falla kindly provided me with some floor plans to their Portelet House, overlooking Portelet Harbour - Guernsey.

Conceived as three timber blocks nestled into the hillside allowing views of the surrounding landscape from all principle rooms. The palette of materials blends with the beach setting and mediates between water, earth and sky.

With sea views out to the North - the house faces a battle between light and distractions. Rightly so, large full height glazing faces out to sea from both the living and dining room. These comprising two of three connected timber blocks. Angled skylights and clerestory windows ensure that the hallways and bedrooms are also doused in daylight.

Lund Hagem - Cabin Ameln

Lund Hagem, based out of Norway have a fantastic site, and collection of baches. Cabin Ameln, a providing sheltered BBQ retreat, and views out across the fjord. Contour hugging hunkered in design, connects with the site while minimalist layout and crisp finishes set it apart from your ordinary weekend retreat.
Location: Østerøya, Sandefjord, Norway
Size: 90 m2
Completed: 2009
The building sits in sloping terrain in close proximity to the sea. It has been designed to create favourable, screened outdoor areas. Previous buildings (4 in total) have been demolished and replaced with one new building that collects all functions under one roof.
The L-shaped layout uses steps to follow the terrain so that the building can utilise existing vegetation and trees to avoid visibility from the sea. This layout creates one upper and one lower outdoor area/patio. The upper patio has been duly
screened from the seafront, but offers views through the building due to glass walls.

I think I've found my Nor…

Steven Holl | Planar House

Steven HollPlanar HouseDesert Tilt Up Wonder - This Steven Holl designed residence in Paradise Valley, AZ, USA, uses raw Concrete and Corten Steel to create a great prefabricated home and art gallery for it's owner.
Designed to house a contemporary art collection, internally, the house sets out to be a blank canvas, not to distract from the works held within.

The street façade blends into the desert greys, with the ageing steel fitting in perfectly.

Flourishes on the exterior are limited to the courtyard from where a ramp leads to a rooftop sculpture garden - a place of silence and reflection.

The rear, with overhands for shading, is the largest expanse of light giving glass. These sliding openings taking in views to the nearby Camelback Mountain.

The house is broken up into three functional areas. The garage and master bedroom, together with the library form the quiet zone at front of the house. To the rear are the dining and kitchen areas, located to soak up the views …
