Datca House made of local stone in Turkey designed by Motto Architecture

Turkey-based architecture studio Motto Architecture has proposed a family house made out of a local stone while adding new functions to the house including passive ventilation, storage and bookshelf to enhance daily life in the house.

The house lies on a low density summer house neighborhood overlooking the Mediterranean Sea in Datça, Turkey. The house makes the most of the beautiful Mediterranean views by positioning spaces with intense daily use on the southern façade.

A hall in the first floor consists of working +relaxing space

The living space extends to the viewing terrace on the south, which can be merged effortlessly by sliding the glass façades open. All circulation and service spaces are positioned on the northern façade to enhance the building’s dialogue with its environment, as well as increasing the efficiency of the use of daylight.

The house presents a very compact living space with its authentic form and materiality -is differentiated through its hipped roof. The stone material is used inside and harmonized with wood material referencing to the locality in the context. In the interior spaces, the stone walls are used as bookshelf and fire place to collect other stuff of the house.
