STUDY

Pina is a peninsula on the Aegean Sea located near Bodrum on the southern coast of Turkey. Surrounded by trees, the peninsula is an example of the local natural beauty. An active decision was made that settlement on the peninsula shouldn’t ruin as beauty. On the contrary,  it should blend with and unite it. Therefore, a number of diagrams were created analyzing the present locations of the trees, natural topography and possible locations for the necessary road branching. These diagrams were laid over one another and the resulting surfaces were molded, stretched and distorted to form the spaces. On the 44.500 m² site, there are 17 villas, 21 hotel rooms, event spaces, restaurants and recreation areas. Each house has its own private deck, private pools and private garden. The location of each piece of the program allows the view to be seen from every point of the site. The individual residential units are formed from radiating and organic intersections. The result is 3 prototypical residences. These units are adapted to suit the site conditions.
