The project is a semi-detached apartment building located in a dense residential area in Nicosia Due to client’s request the building shall be developed in two phases. The first phase consists of three levels: the ground floor – that includes the main entrance and lobby area, parking spaces and storage spaces – the first floor – where a two-bedroom apartment arises – and the roof terrace – that is used as a BBQ area. A large canopy on the roof terrace covers the BBQ area and hosts the photovoltaic panels. All the elements of the roof – including the precast-planters – are designed in such way to ease their transfer on the upper level during construction phase 2; where an additional two-bedroom apartment will be built on the second floor (i.e. the terrace).
Despite its simple design, the building benefits from the strategically placed windows, the landscape that is found on all three levels, and bespoke details.
