Bodrum Houses offer a unique architecture
The Design of Bodrum HousesThe 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.
Sakiz StyleThis 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 StyleThis 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 StyleMusandirali 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 StyleOut 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.
