  • Description


    We are located in a mountain village called Sarpdere. The village is 55 km away from the city of Canakkale in Turkey. Here we live in a house in a 4-acre area that has an oak forest and our garden. It's been 6 years since we settled here with my wife. We are both architects and besides do woodwork, painting, 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 parallel education on conscious life, art, and philosophy. So we try to organize our spaces for this purpose. All of the studies which will be done for students are free.
    Also we have been included in the Res- artist program since May 2022.
