House with Pools on The Roof That Collect Rainwater

Bodrum is a city in Turkey with a rich history and a quite large marina. Global Architectural Development has designed this unusual house there. It consists of three separate buildings of 75 square meters that are built next to one another with a narrow space in between and is linked by a glass atrium. Each of them has a separate function: a master bedroom and bathroom; a kitchen and dining room; and a guesthouse with an adjacent study room. The central glass vestibule acts as the entrance to the building as well as the main living area with 180° vistas of the stunning landscape and bay made possible by floor to ceiling windows.

The open-plan of the main house ensures that it is light and airy, a must in the summer. The roof of the building is covered with pools that collect rainwater. The water cascades from the roof of one of the buildings to the other and is then circulated back round, creating a natural cooling system for a hot climate. [GAD]

    [...] Global Architectural Development have recently come up with an architecture design that left us speechless. Located in Bodrum, Turkey, an important tourist attraction during the summer season, this amazing home comes with two original surprises. Most residences stick to a common roof built out of tiles, shingles and so on. Not this particular home, though. Instead of a regular house covering architecture plan, the team over at GAD decided that they should cover the house with pools that collect rain water. This unusual residence has three distinct buildings that are connected through a glass atrium. The exterior is unique in shape and style. The rooms are all light and airy and the roof water keeps the house cool during the summer. Pretty impressive, don’t you agree?-via Digs Digs [...]
