enota creates tree-filled, sunken atriums for the tetusa oasis resort in turkey

enota has unveiled plans for the ‘tetusa oasis thermal resort’, which will begin construction next year in cesme, turkey. the program is organized in circular building blocks wrapped around deepened inner atriums. the twisted roofs of interconnected building blocks adapt to the hilly terrain, creating a large ‘landform’ that acts as a city park.

the deepened, tree-filled inner atriums serve as a core design feature of the project. they serve to separate different functional zones of the complex, while also satisfying urban regulations which require placing the programs below ground. the inner side of the atrium is deepened, allowing sunlight to come to underground levels. the height differences also allow views from the atrium towards the surroundings.

enota’s design reflects the firm’s research-driven approach to architecture, where study of contemporary social organizations and use of new technologies are interwoven to produce innovative and effective solutions. the nature-inspired project was awarded ‘the hospitality building of the year’ award at the ABB leaf awards in london.
