House in Kantou II in Cyprus by Vassiliades Architects

Saturday, July 30th, 2016

Article source: Vassiliades Architects

In this house with bioclimatic elements in Kantou, Cyprus, the building program was structured in such a way that it is fully operational, while the aim of the full exploitation of the environmental conditions in order to save energy and achieve thermal comfort for users was achieved. All the above, resulted its ranking in energy class “A”. The main idea, which determined the final morphological outcome, is characterized by the parallel synthesis of 3 monolithic volumes. Morphologically, the design combines some more “traditional” typologies and materials with other modern minimalist trends. In this design context, the “monolithic” volumes, are coated with different materials, from a neutral white color to stone and wood panels.

The goal is to transform the site into a hospitality experience, the feeling of space and program into the art of experience, the actions into a viable and flexible development program.

The border: The listed buildings demarcate the central outdoor space with their shape, they accumulate the cultural activities, touristic infrastructure, hospitality, relaxation and entertainment programs (Interactive Museum, Agri-tourism, Baths, Accommodation). The enhancement of uses with reversible constructions of (container) type in a discreet relationship with the listed buildings reinforces the concept of limit and functions as a transitional element from and to the central area (Central Square), into the diffusion area (Natural Element).

This project is consisted of three major volumes. Two of them are forming an “L” shape plan on the ground floor, and the other one sits on top of them at a 30 degrees angle.
The reason for creating such a composition, was to maintain visibility to the most beautiful views the house could have, and at the same provide appropriate orientation for shading for an improved thermal performance.
