House 0214 in Nicosia, Cyprus by Simpraxis Architects

Wednesday, December 12th, 2012

Article source: Simpraxis Architects

The site is located in a densely populated suburban area of Nicosia. The site of about 520 s.m. had a natural slope of about three meters from South-East to North-West with the bordering road running parallel to the slope of the land.  To avoid additional construction costs associated with large retaining walls it was decided that the majority of the construction would be confined on a triangular plateau on the higher level of the plot. The interior and exterior spaces on the ground floor were organized on two levels with a difference in elevation of approximately two feet following the natural slope of the land.
