The project is located in the Ayios Dometios area in a quiet neighborhood near the Nicosia racetrack. The house is 160 sq.m. and is located in an elongated plot of 360 sq.m. with its large dimension to the road network. The communal areas along with two bedrooms are on the ground floor, while the master bedroom is the only upper part of the house, offering more privacy to tenants.
Each use of the house is organized into a cubic volume. These volumes are of the same height and are arranged in such a way as to achieve a functional structure of the spaces. Outside, the courtyard remains free for the most part, while the “recesses” created by the building’s bulkheads accommodate semi-outdoor shaded areas directly associated with the interior.
The spaces are oriented southeast and feature squared openings of different sizes depending on their use. Larger openings are in places where access to the yard is possible and smaller openings are arranged in such a way as to allow for ventilation. For shading both openings and semi-outdoor spaces, perforated material will be used to regulate solar radiation but not interrupt the movement of air.
