  • Description

    Description

    We are located in a mountain village called Sarpdere. The village is 55 km away from city of Canakkale in Turkey.Here we live in a house in 4 acre area that has oak forest and our garden. It's been 3 years that we settled here with my wife. We are both architects and besides that do painting, sculpture and stained glass work. And also we deal with photography, poetry and philosophy.
    Our aim here is to establish a sustainable life in a natural environment. So we established an ecological garden including trees, vegetables, medical plants and wetlands. Also we want to make on parallel education on conscious life,art and philosophy. So we try to organise our spaces for this purposes. All of the studies which will be done for students is free.
