This new concept by the Turkish-Italian designer Utkan Gunerkan is based on natural elements such as water and rocks and how they can also have an architectural function without being ecologically invasive.
Gunerkan was born in Istanbul, but studied architecture at the well-known Politecnico di Milano, after which he gained work experience in both Turkey and Italy. Three years ago he founded his own design studio with which he designs spaces that are always based on the user's past and emotional needs. Memories are an important factor in forming visual preferences, according to the architect.
The architect was inspired by the natural geological formations of the Greek island Milos
Currently, Utkan Gunerkan is mainly concerned with creating inspiring and innovative concepts. He also sent a proposal for the renovation of the destroyed Notre Dame in Paris into the world. His latest design is that of a relaxing terrace for a house on the Greek island of Milos.
The architect was inspired by the natural presence of rocks to create a relaxing place in harmony with its surroundings. The colours, materials and shapes all fit perfectly with the beautiful nature of the archipelago.
