Serdivan Houses are designed to become a trendsetter with its three level restricted height housing typology within the region. Four blocks are lined up along stretched site allowing a total construction area of 3,450 sqm. Each block consists of 6 units with shifting plans at each level. Living rooms, terraces and kitchens are gathered at the front and shifted horizontally at each level to create asymmetrical facade composition along the site. The careful selection of local natural stone (travertine) panelized in varied large rectangular cuts and surface treated to have rough textured finish. Vertical alignment of the stone cladding is interrupted by horizontal aluminium finishes to create a volumetric play to blur leveling lines and neighboring relationships of the units. Window openings are a result of three dimensional shifting of the metal and stone facade fragments. The facade design mediates the major experience between the units’ well daylit interiors, and their external social and green masterplanning strategy.
