About Mamurbaba House
Embracing Family Life in the Mamurbaba House
Situated on a parcel measuring 817 square meters (8,794 square feet), the Mamurbaba House embodies a dedication to family living. We’ve designed this family house with an emphasis on the living standards of its inhabitants, while also taking into account the dynamics of the region.
Minimalistic Design Meets Modern Living
To ensure functionality, simplicity, and sustainability, we adopted a minimal, simple, and transparent style in the design of the house, without sacrificing its modern line. This approach harmoniously aligns the spaces, orientations, and materials, all while preserving the natural and compatible design. The result is a structure that embodies an intrinsic compatibility with nature, offering a timeless appeal.
A Versatile Layout with a Focus on Light
The layout pivots around two axes, creating a distinct separation between the living and sleeping areas. By maximizing the glass surface openings, we’ve amplified the impact of natural light, encouraging its flow throughout the house.
Integrating Common Spaces
The heart of the Mamurbaba House is the open-plan living room, dining area, and kitchen. We’ve transformed these spaces into a single area, envisioned as the focal point of the building.
Modern Facade and Roofing Enhancements
To provide a seamless transition, the facade and roof are coated with anodized aluminum and transparent surfaces. The generous glass openings maintain the consistency of interior and exterior aesthetics. Paired with the aluminum design, this integration cultivates an unlimited spatial experience by offering various views through the indoor and outdoor transitions.
