Bodrum Loft, Turkey – The Plan Award 2018
Bodrum Loft by Tabanlioğlu Architects Wins The Plan Award 2018
The Turkish architecture firm Tabanlioğlu Architects has been honored with The Plan Award in the category ‘Future Hospitality Projects’
Bodrum Loft, Muğla, western Turkey, by Tabanlioğlu Architects:
With it’s Hotel & Resort Project ‘Bodrum Loft’, located in the province of Muğla in the hills of the Turkish coast, Tabanlioğlu Architects was able to create a perfect interaction of nature und modern architecture.
The layouts show hotels, private villas and social spaces on a usable area of 20.000 m². An architectural language was formed that connects precisely with the unique, local topography without bothering the essential characteristics of it.
A mixture of open, semi-open and closed spaces of 38 residences with two, three or four bedrooms, is the core of the design, that makes one feel as a part of nature.
The green roofs are designed to be an elongation of the natural topography beneﬁting the existing hills and terraces of the area.
The mixture of people and nature continues on the material level: stones, excavated on the site, will be re-purposed in façades, walkways, retaining walls and structural elements. The rainwater is collected and utilized in the landscaping.
About Tabanlioğlu Architects
The architecture firm TA_ was founded in 1990 by Murat Tabanlioğlu and his father, Dr. Hayati Tabanlioğlu. Murat Tabanlioğlu’s pronounced affinity for architecture can be traced back to his father’s architectural work, which stretches back into the 1950s.
Since 1995, he, with Melkan Gürsel as partner, has led the firm step by step to international renown. Today TA_ counts more than 100 employees in offices in Istanbul, New York, London, Dubai, and Doha.
The projects designed by Tabanlioğlu Architects range from opera houses and libraries to hotels, arenas, airports, and train stations as well as commercial, residential, and industrial buildings. TA_ has been the firm behind a number of key sites in Turkey. These include the Atatürk Cultural Center (AKM), Istanbul Atatürk Airport, Istanbul Modern art museum, and Bodrum International Airport. Its redesign of the AKM into the new Istanbul opera house is currently one of Turkey’s most exciting architecture projects. In an international context, the firm has been responsible for the Dakar Congress Center and Japan’s New National Stadium in Tokyo.
