Office building on Amathountos str, Limassol, Cyprus

Office building on Amathountos str, Limassol, Cyprus

The function of the building is captured by a simple, frugal and strict structure.

The project is about an office building of a well known Advocate - Legal Consultant in Limassol-Cyprus. The plot is situated in a privileged quiet neighborhood in the center of the town close to the seaside and next to the public zoo park. The concept for the design idea of the building is based on the ‘periscope', with a static orientation and view of the sea.

The main functions of the building are developed in 5 different levels that take over a total in area of 1000sq.m. It is further separated in 3 horizontal zones. The intermediate zone, centrally positioned on the 3rd floor, is the heart of the building as it houses the managerial and administrative departments for better functionality and supervision of the whole building. The basement is used as parking area and the ground floor is the main entry foyer and reception area as well as further parking.

The main idea and functionality are expressed by the simple use of fair faced concrete that makes up the 3 blind sides of the building and a glass curtain wall system on the south side, reating an austere and yet simple but stern look . Wooden beams are placed vertically as filters for the sun and to further control the south east orientation.
