Tekfen Yalikavak Hotel
Muğla, Turkey
The hotel’s low-profile entrance belies the cinematic experience of descending through its open, closed and semi-closed spaces that frame dramatic views of the Aegean Sea. This public part of the building, comprising lobby, lounge and restaurant, has a double-layered facade, protecting against the strong northern wind and allowing natural ventilation. The 40 bedrooms are housed in three separate wings, accessed by semi-open corridors and courtyards which lend a secluded atmosphere. Their balconies are in the form of loggias, for further privacy. With a limited material palette of natural stone, wood and whitewashed plaster, variety is created by differing textures and finishes.
