This amazing house located in Ankara, Turkey is a 1050 m2 residence of three storeys designed by Yazgan Design Architecture. Built on a very steep site, the house offers great views of the surroundings, especially of the Middle East Technical University forest, but also of the urban landscape. The entrance is very unusual; a glass bridge connects the verge with the house letting us to see the entire building but also a beautiful green space underneath it.
Here, the house isn’t painted in orange but in white, making a difference between the storeys. The façade is embellished by a big swimming pool that surrounds the whole construction, making the impression that it is built into water. Because it is an Oriental country, in Turkey we can see lots of interesting combinations of strong colors. Here, I think that our house is painted in orange to give us the opportunity to see and admire it from the distance, to be the only building standing out on this area.
I was really impressed by the amazing detail from the exterior staircase.They are built on a mini artificial waterfall with interesting lighting objects.Although the house hasn’t so much furniture, we have the impression that we enter into a club thanks to its joyful colors and lights. The living areas have an interesting ceiling which seems to be drilled or maybe made of a spongy material with plenty of spotlights reflected in the wooden floors. Upstairs, the house is decorated in orange and purple tones, to emphasize the minimalist paintings from the walls.
