Award Entry

Design-driven ranch house in near Turkish-Bulgarian border 

Skylight, a modern ranch house design built in Palivor Ranch, is a private ranch development in Kirklareli Turkey. The house creates a connection with nature through its inspiring architecture, bringing light, nature and style to its occupants.

The architect, Oral Architects, attempted to design and supply custom-made, purpose-built furniture and fittings that functioned as integrated parts of the whole design. Their innovative use of new building materials such as Green Roof is a first in Turkey.

The five-bedroom, three-bath ranch house offers approximately 250 sq m of interior living space in a relaxing, sophisticated environment. Skylight's ground floor is for day living; the open plan living accommodates flexible lifestyles thanks to interlocked different spaces. Open space is very important for Skylight: more than 222 sq m of outdoor timber decked living space makes this ranch house an ideal place for entertaining.

Skylight is designed to benefit from the sun at all time of the day without allowing the sun to overheat the interiors. The effective use of window placement gives more natural light and lessens the need for electric lighting during the day.
