This book project is about a house in Datça, a small Aegean town in soutwest Turkey, that is specifically designed for its occupants' life routine by Teğet Architecture. (click here for the project website.) The reason why this project's book idea came up is its unique details and construction process.
 
My role in this book project was to create an outline and scheme, as representing the drawings for publication printing; deciding the size, book binding etc. Before the design procedure I spent three days with the occupants and found oppurtunity to make a relation between needs and architural design criterias.
 
Datça House treats the pool as the courtyard of an conventional U shaped plan scheme and serves a continious view on the floor through the panels. Main life cycle is carried on the first floor, while the mechanical equipments, garage and guest bedrooms are on the garden level. The tectonic contact among context, materials and structure is in correspondence.
 
P.S: This is not a published book. The texts are blind text and editing prosedure is not finished. (Surprised?)

You see plan of Mehmet Ali Ağa Konağı a.k.a Kocaev (Big House) on the left page, which was a reward for Captain Ali for his good service in Ottoman navy. The sofa and the rooms that open up is a typical Turkish House plan type and Datça House has references to it.
