Life Space Building in Kaimakli

Our concept idea:
The site area is located on a plain plot near the center of Nicosia. This area composed by  buildings build in the 80’s.

Due to the fact that the site is small we develop a curvature based on a dynamic skyline axis. This movement transform the building from a static volume to a dynamic sculpture.

In order to make the building unique comparing with the surrounding buildings we added a touch of colour chosen from the Iris colour palette.

This structure is a residential four level building consisted of studios, one, two and three bedroom  apartments.

Across the blind side of the building the stairs and Lift were placed in such a way in order to distribute equally the vertical movement in each level.

On the roof of the building there is a roof garden which is directly connected through external stair to the top level.

The use of glass in the south ,north and east side of the apartments, has as a target the success of environmental apodosis.
Using the wind route, the architects manage to make cross ventilation through the house using glass windows on the sides. This has as result the cooling of the apartments. The building will use engineering systems which will take advantage of the natural energy sources minimizing the energy loss.
