Ipervasi in Nicosia, Cyprus by Constantinos Kalisperas Architectural Studio

We live in times of crisis.
The globalised world, especially as it was formed after 9/11, is beset today, more than ever, by economic, political, religious, ethnic and social crises, but also by a deep existential identity crisis.

The 2008 bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers, once the fourth largest investment bank in the United States, was a clear sign that “something is rotten in the State of Denmark”1and set fire to the lurking financial crisis worldwide. A crisis spreading in
a chain reaction – possibly the most complex one since the Second World War and quite different from the 1929 stock market crash – the consequences of which are still felt today, especially within the European territory.

House 0614 in Nicosia, Cyprus by Simpraxis

Friday, December 14th, 2012

Article source: Simpraxis

The house designed for a couple with two children is situated in a suburban area of Nicosia that is only recently undergoing development. The square footprint of the house is largely determined by the rectangular shape of the site subtracting the three meters required setback on three sides and allowing for a large yard at the back that faces south. The house attempts to address the dual nature of the largely undeveloped landscape that can be inviting but also intimidating. The box is programmatically divided into two parts. A two story rectangular box along the east boundary includes bedrooms and a bathroom for the children as well as guest areas, service areas, kitchen and parking. The remaining void of the double height ‘box’ includes the common areas, the outdoor covered areas on the ground floor and the master bedroom and bath on the second floor.

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.

The Funnel House in Paphos, Cyprus by LK architects

Wednesday, October 17th, 2012

Article source: LK architects

The residence was built on a flat plot in the village of AgiaMarinouda, Pafos, Cyprus. The shape was determined by the views and climatic factors such as the sun movement and prevailing winds. The internal sides of the L shape plan face a generous orchard under development on the East side that will further enhance, in combination with the swimming pool, the coolness of the courtyard.
