Under the name Hüsame Köklü it is situated in a rural district of Turkey called Bayburt which is known for its harsh climatic conditions – very hot summers and freezing winters.

The plot was donated by a local teacher with the intention of bringing different generations of women together under one roof.

The firm said: “The spaces in their simplicity and openness provide a configurable ‘place’, customised by the users and their needs. The steep roof, a mandatory design element due to the heavy snowfall is stylistically embedded and acts as an agent to divide the overall structure into smaller volumes in harmony with the built environment.”
