The Interlace

The Project consists of 9 apartments and is located in  a serene residential area in Nicosia very close proximity to the city center , the University  and the Embassy area. The site is fronted by two roads to the North and West, allowing all the apartments to have street facing verandas. The development comprises of three typical floors, each accommodating two 2-bedroom and one 3-bedroom apartments.

The Building is articulated in three vertical volumes which are vividly separated between them, thus optimising the privacy of each apartment. Nonetheless, the architectural approach enhances a continuity and kinetic expression between the three volumes, creating an interplay of the facade with the planters, the verandas and the windows. These elements, also act as a series of layers creating exposed and private moments.
