T-House byTeke Architects

One of the projects competing for the win of the prestigious Mies Van Der Rohe Award 2017, among others, is the T-House, an efficient and organic home designed by Onur Teke (Teke Architects) and built in the district of Izmir. Wood and glass, which are essential components of the structure developed on about 200 square meters, constantly connect the inside to the outside, setting out the relationship with the environment and thus creating the illusion of a "house surrounded by nature". Here, are also employed a number of active and passive technologies to reduce the expenditure of energy, including solar panels and special openings for cross ventilation throughout the year.
