House in Limassol

Vassiliades Architects as Architects

The design of this residence in Limassol, is identified by modernistic archetypes, while minimalistic morphological choices were made, in order to distinguish its pure architectural features, which led to a result without unnecessary decorations and exaggerations.

The composition of two basic volumes, which are identified by their function and material - white color for the communal spaces, exposed concrete for the private spaces, constitutes the main idea of the project.

An important part of the composition is the creation of a small atrium on the ground floor, which improves the natural lighting conditions of the communal spaces and improves the natural cross-ventilation conditions.

At the same time, the 1st floor’s volume is projected at the southeastern side, thus creating a covered outdoor area and providing sun protection.

Finally, the bioclimatic elements used in the design of this house, led to its classification as a nearly zero-energy building (nZEB).
