AHK Kundu Houses in Antalya, Turkey
Design: GAD Architecture
Location: Antalya, southwestern Turkey – Mediterranean resort destination
New Houses in Antalya
Antalya is a city on the Mediterranean coast of southwestern Turkey. The project site is located next to a tourism zone of Antalya with a distance to the city center of 20 km. The beautiful seaside of Antalya, with its many hotels and residential buildings, is highly active and with a strong connection to the water. Housing units are best positioned in a North-South alignment to use sunlight as a clean energy source via photovoltaic panels.
General master plan organisation has the AHK Kundu Housing Units arranged in a South-North direction. Facade and roof openings are designed in accordance with natural ventilation principles.
Total sustainable design strategy consists of the following: natural ventilation via strategic openings, maximum daylight usage and capturing due to floor plan shape, sunlight collection and control as a renewable energy source, plus a green and public space for social-sustainability use.
Exterior Timber cladding design acts as a shell for the Housing Units.It helps to improve daylight quality of interior and controls climate at night. Moreover, the individual private area of each unit is defined with the help of this cladding design.
A green environment for ground plane of the project site allows free circulation of pedestrians. Each Housing Unit has its own car park and a transportation link will be provided by underground circulation. The project includes 17 Large, 56 Medium and 50 small Housing Units.
Interior Designers aim to use daylight in the most efficent and impactfull way. Sunlight directly affects the interior concept and overall quality of space. Each housing units consist of an entrance floor that includes; pool and terrace, living and dining room, guest room, kitchen, greenhouse, storeroom, & toilet. The second floor contains bedrooms with their own private bathrooms , and a working area that has a connection to a galley. Finally a basement floor includes; fitness area, sauna, hobby room and servant/storage rooms.
This floor also benefits from natural sunlight via an inner courtyard that also has a connection to the sauna; however it is designed to consider the amount of privacy required.
The design principles of AHK KUNDU houses are respectful to the location, using various naturally existing local materials and textures.
Commonly, floors are covered with natural stone while ceilings are covered with wooden timber to support the feeling of warmth and elegance. Bedrooms typically use the natural warmth of timber for flooring and textured walls for a subtle effect.
Furniture selection is influenced by these floor and ceiling materials, using various tones that compliment. All carefully selected movable or built-in furniture are combined with pastel textiles to emphasize the unique elegance of the overall design.”
