Villa Chevalier - Fethiye, Muğla

Design:    Berkay Ünlükoç, with Hatice Havle Aşkar

Villa Chevalier is on the only island near Fethiye which has settlements on it. This narrow plot is situated on the ridge of the island and has a stunning view of the sea on both sides. This vista forged the main design principle of the villa. Though not having a traditional architecture the building regulations of the island were very restrictive for the materials that can be used and a maximum of 50% was allowed for openings on any facade. These were the major handicaps when trying to maintain a see-through effect. The transparency effect is achieved by dividing and shifting the mass into two major parts. The shifted levels provided a sea view and thus a see-through effect from every level.
