Various sized 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom premium residences built to the highest standards with elegant details and sophisticated interior design. The project entails many unique details such as ‘sunny terraces’ thanks to vertically juxtaposing terrace slabs; ‘colourful terrace gardens’ planted with red firecrackers and citronella plants known for their mosquito-repellent characteristic, granting a Mediterranean charm to the facades of the building.
The layout of the complex consists of 3 blocks which are interconnected to each other with an atrium space. This particular architectonic configuration offers maximum level of privacy to its residents. The compact solution of triple blocks interconnected with an atrium grants ease of access equally for all the 3 blocks to the entire on-site facilities (which are located on the garden level of C Block). The atrium is an area of circulation and gathering, like the heart pumping and collecting blood to and from the body. In this organic analogy, the atrium is the heart, the corridors are the veins, the apartments are the cells and the residents are the blood giving life to the entire system.
Q Spa Resort is located in Antalya Turkey, in the county of Evrenseki near Side.Evrenseki is an up-and-coming resort with modern infrastructure, numerous luxury resorts and a fantastic beach park and promenade stretching along its fine sandy beaches. Its harbour has recently been completed. The area offers enormous investment potential with several new projects in the pipeline worth more than a hundred million Euros in the coming year alone.
The layout of the complex consists of 3 blocks which are interconnected to each other with an atrium space. This particular architectonic configuration offers maximum level of privacy to its residents. The compact solution of triple blocks interconnected with an atrium grants ease of access equally for all the 3 blocks to the entire on-site facilities (which are located on the garden level of C Block). The relationship of each block with its setting offers a sensible variety giving buyers different alternatives when selecting a unit that suits to their individual requirements in terms of sun exposure, views and aspects.
The atrium is accommodating the entrance lobby and the reception desk where people can gather practical information about the area, and make bookings for restaurants and daily tours etc. It also provides the circulation at the ground floor level amongst indoor & outdoor public facilities as well as vertically to the residential floors through a panoramic lift. The atrium is enriched with interior plants placed on specially designed integrated aluminum pots juxtaposed on each floor in a vertical fashion.
The perforated metal frames cladded on the outside surfaces of the large openings help to control the penetration of the daylight into the atrium and at the same time creating a lure ambience while the incoming light is filtered through the patterns of the perforated metal frames.
The building is terraced on the edges giving it an elegant gradual elevation off the ground. The residences can benefit from maximum amount of daylight with their entire frontal glass facades opening up to a spacious ‘unshaded’ terrace as well as a terrace garden. The privileged corner residences exclusively enjoy these generously sized private outdoor spaces with a built-in BBQ and even an optional built-in hydro-massage Jacuzzi bath.
Roof terraces of 21 m2 on each floor are forming an enjoyable outdoor space for day & night. These attractive outdoor spaces have been further improved with the use of built-in planting areas decorated with pebble stones. The use of modern wall flush light fittings and linear recessed LED light features enhance the night atmosphere on the roof terraces.
The façade gains a green aspect with the use of the firecracker (Russelia equisetiformis) and citronella plants. These long-lasting low-maintenance delightfully red flowers are planted in the built-in gardens placed right in front of panoramic windows of the apartments so that they please the eye both from the outside looking at the façades and also from inside the apartments watching out of the window. Whilst they colour the clean white-washed façade of the building with intensive red and green, they stand out as a dominant architectural element lending a timeless design aesthetic to the facades. The citronella plant with its pleasing smell is also known as a natural mosquito-repellent. These built-in gardens are equipped with automatic watering system and extensive water insulation. The ground floor units allow direct access to the landscaped gardens from their terraces. They enjoy a private outdoor space of 35 m2 including its terrace and a surrounding lawned area with an option for a built-in hydro-massage Jacuzzi bath.
The façade of the building has been enriched with individual terraces which are disconnected from each other to enhance the privacy on the outdoor living areas. These terraces are designed in a staggered fashion so that they do not cause shade to the one below. This peculiar design is providing the terrace with more sunshine and enables the daylight to penetrate deeper into the interiors of the apartments.
