Ultava Houses is located in the old village neighborhood "Eski Datça" of Datça, Turkey.
The project consists of the renovation of three village houses to become guesthouses located inside a big garden full of local fruit plants.
The houses are completely emptied, leaving only the stone walls. A new roof with big windows inviting the light and the view is introduced for each. A spacious terrace area is designed for each house, featuring also a private jacuzzi and sunbed. The interior design concept was created utilizing clues from the traditional local civil architecture and from the ancient Greek civilization, and reassembling them with a contemporary point of view.
An exclusive but humble restaurant is designed for the garden with an open kitchen, featuring a unique Mediterranean fusion menu, prepared by a local chef.
