Bodrum Houses offer a unique architecture

Bodrum Houses offer a unique architecture
Bodrum houses are world famous for its beauty and unique architecture. They are generally small, have a cubical shape and they are either pure white or built with natural stone. Bodrum houses are a good example of a minimalist architecture.

The Design of Bodrum Houses

The houses are designed cleverly to fit the needs of the climate. It is known that the stone houses  preserve residents from the hot weather of the summer months and keeps the property warm during winter months.
 Similarly, painting the exterior of the property pure white, hinders the hot weather getting into the property. White walls also restricts snakes and scorpions entering the house. Due to the hot weather, the windows are small and the properties have a large terrace or garden, where the residents spend the majority of their time and even where they cook. This is why when we look at the drawings of the villas, the exterior is very large, while the interior of the houses are relatively small.   Bodrum houses have four distinct styles:

Sakiz Style

This is the most common type. The houses have two floors and they are in the shape of a rectangle. When you enter the house, you first come across a staircase leading upstairs. Ground floor has two rooms, one on the left and one on the right. The property has a large terrace.

Levanten Style

This is similar to Sakiz style, however this style is larger and has higher ceilings. Windows pavements generally have handiworks. This style was designed by the European businessmen that arrived Bodrum in the 19th century.

Musandirali Style

Musandirali houses were generally used as a summer home and they benefit from a very large garden. The property has 4 floors in total, each half a floor higher than the other one. When you enter the property, the first room you come across is the kitchen. When you go half a floor down with the stairs, it is the pantry / storage room. As the room is located underground, it keeps food cool during summer months. One floor up the kitchen is the living room. The top floor is the bedrooms. As these rooms were used only for sleeping, the ceiling heights were as low as 140 cm.

Kule Style

Out of the four types, Kule is the most luxurious and the oldest style. The houses have three floors, each half a floor higher than the other one. Years ago, the entrance to these properties were through a folding bridge.
