Environmentally-conscious and sustainable design principles of MESA are always people-oriented. These principles that have aroused in Ankara as “Livable Volumes” have been developed with the purpose of achieving the best and embellishing life and today became one of the most contemporary and practical examples. Finding safer and more comfortable solutions anywhere in the world, learning and putting these into practice enabled MESA to make numerous innovations. This development in technology and production practices became our biggest power to provide the “Architecture and Life” conditions that we imagined of.
There are great number of significant matters that should be considered for establishing satisfaction. Of course, aesthetics is one of them. Although housing design proceeds through different styles together with the historical development of architecture, it should always have a certain standard and even go beyond that standard. The expectation functions of people regarding houses are definite. Even these functions are definite, the materials that we use can change.
Our habits of use can also change depending on our needs. In addition to the items such as technological infrastructure, lighting, heat and energy control of the house, designing a space for the electronic house appliances become important. The life philosophy of MESA is to be a developer and to equip each dwelling with items that ease life and sustain comfort.
Sustainability and Life
“What do we mean by sustainability?” Maybe this is the basic question in construction. This terminology is evaluated in terms of both material and usage dimensions in the academy. In fact, the same concept can be summarized as material suggestion, construction technologies, and relationship with the environment, spatial setup and usage.
Structures may be built with quality and durable materials, but space usage and setup are yet very important. For this reason, if the physical changes in the structures start to restrict the usage opportunities, they cannot be sustainable. “Ratio” and human scale are the essential factors for sustainability. Mesa projects are built on ratios required for a sustainable and comfortable life.
