Adres Yalıkavak is located in Bodrum Yalıkavak, Gökçebel district. The sloping land faces Tilkicik Bay and runs towards the sea in the southeastern direction. The Project draws attention with the gorgeous scene offered by sea and the living areas of the bays right across.
Adres Yalıkavak is made up of 79 houses in total, which are designed as 25 triplex and 18 duplex buildings and 36 flats. Besides, the project scope contains social facilities, beach club, restaurant, outdoor pool, gym, indoor parking lot, sales outlet, and other social amenities. The project consists of two different blocks. The large sized block hosts 39 buildings in total with 49 dwelling units. 32 buildings with private pools offer two different alternative dwelling units as duplex and triplex. The triplex houses have a basement that can be used as a gym, hobby hall, cinevision room, or play area, 3 indoor parking areas, and an outbuilding of 30 m². The 7 single-storey buildings have 14 flats in total. The large block also has a social facility on a surface area of 2,800 m² with an outdoor swimming pool, restaurant, play room, children’s playground, and gym.
The small sized block is made up of 4 different buildings with 2 and 3 floors. These buildings cover 33 houses in total, which are designed as 11 duplex and 22 single-storey flats. There is access to the terrace and garden of each house at the ground level. Furthermore, there is also an outdoor pool, restaurant, sales unit, and indoor and outdoor parking lots for common use.
At the beginning of the project, it was aimed to create a concept where families can comfortably live all year round, meet all their needs seamlessly, and adults and children can spend time together individually or together. In this context, a careful study was made by allocating large areas to social facilities.
Jointly designed by AS Architects and Gökhan Aksoy Architects, Adres Yalıkavak project emphasizes a housing understanding that embraces the landscape and where open spaces are held on the front. The gardens and terraces of the houses are designed so that the residents can stay away from vehicle and people traffic inside the plot. Thanks to the advantage offered by the inclined land, each building is positioned at the roof level of another. In this way, the residents are given the opportunity to send time in privacy in their garden without any scenic interruption. Moreover, the vehicle traffic on the top elevation of the houses is taken underground via sheltered tunnels to ensure the arrival of each vehicle to buildings in the ground level. Considering the fact that the climate is hot predominantly during the year and that the use of vehicles will be denser during the hottest months, a sheltered structure was selected for parking lots. Avoidance of positioning the parking lots at the garden level has been advantageous also to expand the green areas.
To make the best use of the scene, the buildings’ long-form fronts face the sea. By diverting from the conventional mass structure understanding, the lower and upper floors of the two-storey dwelling units have been eccentrically combined to increase the mass dynamism and also to emphasize the seaward inclination of all buildings.
Instead of using white color, as a regional characteristic, soil and wood tones are preferred in this project and attention has been given to using an expression that is integrated with nature. In the façade design, natural wood covering panels were used on the marble and aluminum panels. The marble’s natural tissue and the wood’s warmness were combined and reflected on the façade design.
