Simple Wave House is a Minimalist Summer Home for Turkey

minimalism, daylighting, Turkey, architecture, prefab construction, modular designTurkish designer Gunes Peksen doesn’t say much about this concept for a minimalist summer retreat, but it is definitely reminiscent of the Prefab LoftCube in Lebanon that received so much attention earlier this year. Although we tend to favor earth architecture, like Nader Khalili’s wonderful earth bag homes fit for space, or Hassan Fathy’s mud structures in Egypt, Peksen caters to modern urbanites who seek contemporary design solutions to dwindling material and spatial resources.

A continuous white-washed structure designed to mimic the shape of a wave, the Wave House does appear to ripple out onto a lush green yard.

Plenty of natural lighting permeates the glazed walls while deep overhangs mitigate excess solar gain and provide plenty of shade.

The home is slightly raised, giving it flexibility and an even smaller footprint while its modular design suggests the potential for prefabricated construction, which would cut down on the amount of material waste generated.

Peksen has given the interior design a light touch, which is really all that is required of a holiday house. Alternatively, this angular structure would appeal to modern nomads and roving business people who seek a slightly built but light-filled environment for  temporary shelter.
