Ardesco by Teget Architectural Office
Situated on the bare slopes of Bodrum Peninsula, the initial awareness arose during the first site visit; that the extensive, wildly beautiful views towards the Mediterranean unfolded following the contour lines of the topography. This lead us create a settlement in the form of a giant open air theatre, where each level following the curve of the slopes constituted a continuous retaining wall out of stone. The detached houses are aligned along these walls, resting on them in a rythm as if single storey structures. In fact each is a two floor house, the bedrooms burried in the retaining walls. This is a layout where the program of the house opens up to a multi layered garden system: Lower garden for the bedrooms, upper garden for the living.
