World renowned architect Richard Meier designed a series of modern homes called “Bodrum Houses” in Yalikavak, Turkey. 23 houses designed in 5 different design styles.

Yalikavak, overlooking the Agean Sea, is the most prestigious residential area in Bodrum, Turkey. In 2006, Berggruen holdings purchased over 168,000 sq/m of land with panoramic views of Yalıkavak Bay and the marina. They then hired world renowned architect Richard Meier to design a series of modern homes for the hillside. Here’s a lok at some of the beautiful designs.
