MK House
Sakarya / Turkey, 2016

MK House was designed as a structure that could be part of the natural environment of a 100.000m2 horse farm in the province of Düzce, questioning the concept of the “belongingness” in the area. Any self-sustaining farm life, with its calm, serene, purposeful and function-oriented focus, reveals about how a real livable space can be a natural part of this area with MK House and with the house how it can be get rid of this routine time to time. MK House stands out with the desire to be "invisible" in its natural environment as much as possible, with its modest volume, the limited material choices and the colors used in certain ranges. 


The MK House consists of individual rooms and living units integrated on a glass hall. With the possibility of masses scattered at different heights, the structure that can accommodate the daylight into every space can be used like a house spread out in a single mass, or it can be used as independent rooms at the same time. The living areas leading to the southern front are dominated by forests over paddocks. The contour of a fairly simple and elegant life is emphasized by the metal standing seam roof. In the interior, the same refined material selection was continued. Floors are covered by natural stone or natural wooden parquets. The ceiling rises over the gypsum plastered walls and is covered with panels of natural polished water. Fragmented plan layout and two-sided façade provide light from every direction. The rooms in the basement are used as warehouses.
