Residence 51

Photiou Architects as Architects

Residence 51 is so named due to its exclusive location at the heart of Limassol business and leisure amenities. The six-storey apartment building has been specifically orientated to fully utilise the whole of the site whilst maintaining stunning sea views. The building adapts to the topography and views creating a dynamic flow through a slight turning of the blocks. The grounds will be accessed from the east entrance where all cores are linked to an underground car park, enabling the site to be free from vehicles above ground.


The building accommodates 80 apartments, ranging from 70 to 300 sq.m. The high degree of flexibility in the design of the floor plans, spanning traditional to flowing room concepts, forms the basis for all apartments, as does the constant presence of the surrounding green space.


Within the development apartments differ in size and floor plan depending on the location view and light conditions. The floor plan concept creates flowing interior space defined by solid elements which accommodate auxiliary functions. The selection of materials for the living and sleeping area provides an elegant calm atmosphere.


The external verandas which run around the whole building provide a transition area between the interior living space and the surrounding area. Depending on the interior functions, sunlight and the conditions of the site, moveable elements allow the resident to further decide on the degree of privacy desired.


The sixth floor apartments are penthouses with far-reaching views towards the sea and the city of Limassol.


On entering the building via a marble clad hall one reaches the lobby with views of the private landscaped garden through generously proportioned openings. The lobbies provide access to the individual apartments via lifts and stairwell.


The outdoor pool is located at the southern tip of the site. This follows the irregular shape of the plot forming a kind of retaining wall that continues to define the border of the property.
