SWISSOTEL RESORT BODRUM BEACH
GAD Architecture’s design for the holiday resort in the south of Turkey aims to enjoy the sea view as much as possible.
Swissotel Resort Bodrum Beach is a coastal development in Turgutreis, on the Bodrum peninsula, Turkey, located on a gently sloping site with unobstructed sea-views of Turgutreis Marina. The project consists of a hotel with 60 rooms, 46 apartments, and 27 residential villas as well as a spa, gym and pool complex.
A pedestrian path links the hotel lobby to the sea, bridging the light-flooded space to a seaside restaurant and bar at its other end, creating a focal point by the sea. This main axis structures the development and serves as a back-spine of the site’s circulation.
The apartment buildings and residential villas are arranged on a series of platforms, cascading down towards the sea, providing the maximum possible vista. Each villa has two levels with private rooms in the upper level and a spacious living room at the garden level, offset fin walls, pushing out to the sides of the buildings, maximizing their facade and offering a sea view for each room. Wooden screens and canopies add an additional layer of detail and also protect from the intense summer sun.
