The project is situated in the heart of the capital’s Central Business District and it aspires to add to the growing number of extra-ordinary buildings that are shaping the urban fabric of the city.
Its pure lines and restrained aesthetics are a testament to the buildings assured design. The building will stand confidently for decades to come, as one of the most sought after addresses in the capital.
The building, whether day or night, is always in use, energizing the area around it. Thus, the design responds to contemporary society’s need for buildings that operate as multi-functional cells within the urban environment.
The design of the outer shell of the building protects and regulates how light reaches the glass walls and openings on all floors.
The metallic skin acts as a protective shield against the intense sun of the island. Made of perforated vertical aluminum panels, it opens and closes depending on the conditions one wants to create in the interior. Energy consumption for cooling and heating is thus kept remarkably low.
The glass facade on the ground floor allows for transparency and for natural lighting.
A cafe and fitness gym, are located on the seventh floor, acting as transitional spaces between the office and the apartment floors. The elegant cafe detailed with natural materials offers a relaxing place to unwind. The gym features state-of the-art equipment in a light-filled space that makes exercise a joy.
A close look of the apartments shows the thoughtful attention given to every aspect of their design. Emphasis is placed on the creation of flexible spaces that allow the occupants to shape them according to their individual lifestyles. Uncommon among residential high-rises, all apartments have floor-to-ceiling openings which allow the interiors to be suffused with natural light and to connect to the outside. Each apartment has large outdoor covered spaces for all-year-round use.
Perched high above the hustle and bustle of the city below, the occupants are privileged to live in an urban retreat without leaving the city. They offer unforgettable 360º views of the city below that extend all the way to the two mountain ranges that frame Nicosia. The penthouse has access to a roof garden with a lap pool.
