EPP TERMAL COUNTRY YALOVA
KentPlus YALOVA Wellness SPA Resort in Armutlu - Yalova, a region with a rough topography, mild climate and a spectacular sea view in Turkey, offers a green life for its users as a mixed use complex that combines many different functions such as residential, hotel and social facilties.
Besides, a section of houses called ‘hayat’ which is mostly seen in the typologies of “Ancient Turkish Houses” is being interpreted again by integrating to the modern life. ‘Hayat’ is used as a pleasant common area that serves to take advantage of combining two different flats and to increase the interaction and sharing of neighbors. Essentially, the aim was that the atmosphere created outdoors should be drawn via an inner garden into the house, which is into life. In this way an atmosphere was created that users would not only experience when they went outdoors, but as a part of their daily lives. Residential units, being reconsidered with all these approaches, were designed by the way of gathering the classic plan typologies in different way and reconstruction of functioning of this combination.
As well as the residential buildings, social facilities and the hotels; multi storey parking garage, health centre, mosque, school and restaurant buildings were also designed as a part of the project main concept.
