Voyage Torba Hotel by Baraka Mimarlik merges into the local town of Bodrum.
Bodrum is a town where tourism, construction and relentless profit pressures have limited effects for now. It consists of two story, mostly detached vacation homes and, several boutique hotels.
The complexity and the scale of the project are disproportional to the town. Handling the project area in one large piece and processing it through a singular architectural character would have been a big intervention for the town.
It was important to avoid a typical hotel scheme organised in separate compartments, according to mass consumption habits, in denial of its predecessors and surroundings, and to look for clues of reconciliation with the local space.
