The surrounding nature influenced the shape,  aesthetic and material palette of the project. 

An Extended Sloping Roof

The angular structure features a sloping roof that extends from the top to the ground and merges well. "We tried to use a solid and simple form to make a powerful and safe feeling.


On the other hand, making harmony with the surrounding by extending the sloping roof to the ground was our main goal. In the end, the futuristic and modern form was born during this process. Also, it is an inner space at the front door,” said the architect.
