A focal point for Cyprus’ performing arts, showcasing national and international performances of music, dance, opera and theatre.
Following an international architectural competition in March 2007, we were awarded a commission to design a Centre for Performing Arts for symphonic and chamber music, together with dance, opera and musical theatre. In response to the growing discerning regional audience and cultural tourism, the building will also play a strong role in the Capital’s civic and educational life.

Cyprus Cultural Centre

Our urban strategy places the Cultural Centre at the heart of a new Cultural Quarter.  A major Civic Square and outdoor performance space will link the Cultural Centre to the proposed House of Representatives and the National Gallery and extend the nearby Pediaeos River Linear Park into the site.

There are three main performance spaces – a 1,400 seat Concert Theatre, a 500 seat Recital Hall and a Rehearsal Hall.  They are expressed as individual elements, within the building volume, linked to a generous foyer, which faces on to the new Civic Square.  In addition a series of internal spaces and external courtyards house the support activities – Box Office, Galleries, Shops, Restaurants, Education and the administration.
