Ma Vie La by S Erdil. Izmir, Turkey


This is a house with a strict minimalist approach.  5 main materials were used. Concrete, Steel, Stone, Wood and Glass. The main ambition was to make as much use of the land as possible while creating a variety of wide and open spaces that can be used depending on the wind and weather conditions. The folding/sliding window and door systems, the 8m long cantilever and the pool placement on the side of the house are all design decisions to maximize the living areas. The folding/sliding systems make convertible living spaces to switch between indoor and outdoor. The cantilever was designed to minimize the footprint while maximizing open areas. The cantilever also serves to push the building mass toward the sea view, clearing the adjacent house, to create a large roadside terrace and to provide plenty of shade by the pool and garden.
