Springer House (Kalkan)

The main inspiration for this building has been the typical Mediterranean terraced houses. Therefore, we decided on pulling back the balconies into the line of the building rather than having overhanging ones. By putting in stone floors, we have also made an aesthetic connection with the traditional Kalkan stone houses.  We succeeded in creating the effect of uniting the house with the sea in the distance by extending the walking distance through the pillars supporting the swimming pool.

Architect Erdal DURAN

“We decided to build a villa abroad and were very familiar with Turkey having visited Kalkan many times before. We were drawn to Erdal’s individual, stylish designs and decided to build a property in Kalkan using the NEED company.
We spent an entire holiday searching for plots of land and became disheartened on missing out on a plot we wanted. We eventually left a deposit with Ergun who promised us that they would find a good plot and build us the house of our dreams. Our friends back in England thought we were mad. The Turkish style of “my word is my bond” sat uneasily with us at first but we trusted both Erdal and Ergun completely. Ergun did not fail us and found us a plot of land with a spectacular view. Needless to say they have indeed designed and built us the house of our dreams. The location is fantastic the villa is spacious, light and airy and every room has fabulous views. We are thrilled with it. It was designed for us as individuals and met all of our specifications and knowing that it is one of a kind makes it even more special. Both Erdal and Ergun emphasise the need to be sensitive to the local area and aesthetic values are high on their list of priorities. Erdal and Ergun’s knowledge of the climate and other local factors meant that we gained hugely from their expertise.We would highly recommed their company to any prospective buyers.”
