My intention wasn't to build just and yet another ordinary concrete house, as a (structural) engineer with a concentration in architecture, I wanted to make a statement, and (try to) reflect the uniqueness of the buildings that were skilfully constructed in the grandeur of our Ottoman past: Aesthetic, artistic and functional. Always with art and functionality in mind, using special techniques, materials, workforce and here is Villa Sedir. Sema Topaloglu Duggan MBA CEng.Probably one of the very few properties in Kas offering the unique combination of a truly luxurious interior; phenomenal full bay views including Marina; private pool; town centre location with shops, beaches, the square all within walking distance.
