Villa Toros (Kalkan)
This building was originally designed for the couple Halit and Gülsen Ergör, who are both theatre actors. For this reason the design is spacious and high-ceilinged with a gallery floor to create a theatrical atmosphere inside the building and tall, dramatic windows on the façade facing Kalkan Bay provide a natural scenic backcloth. The building is set on the Bezirgan Road, where the Taurus Mountains look down from above. The stone cladding and the sloping walls were designed to create unity between the mountains behind and the building in front which enjoys its open view over the bay in the distance. The infinity-style pool – in the same spirit – was designed to create a unifying effect with the sea. Although the building belonged to someone else, the present owners liked the design and decided to go ahead with our building.
