The Unseen Green in Limassol, Cyprus by Constantinos Kalisperas Architectural Studio

Thursday, November 3rd, 2016

Article source: Constantinos Kalisperas Architectural Studio 

The design is based on the creation of a small hybrid “Green Garden” that interconnects both the interior and exterior of the house. This new proposed green space, has the ability to host the social activities of the owners in a more causal manner, within the shelter provided by the overwhelming plantation. Plants are used as a “filtering” tool for the external surrounding ‘noise’ and sunlight, providing a great sense of privacy and tranquility.

Apartment building in Limassol, Cyprus by Vassiliades Architects

Tuesday, August 9th, 2016

Article source: Vassiliades Architects

The building is located in Limassol and consisted of 6 apartments. Morphologically, the building is a composition of solid volumes and surfaces, which vary in color and reflect functional differentiations and movements ∙ always aiming to the functionality and the comfort of the user. Dominant feature is the central vertical volume which is marked with a bright red color and serves the vertical movements. The balconies project into \”alignment\” as a reference to the morphological repeatability of the classic flats – only here, the order and the simplicity are the philosophy of composition. The glass railings highlight the overhanging levels and balance the \”heavy feeling\” of the compact set. In the latter, the circular openings in the \”frame\” that surrounds the balconies are opposed. Finally, the south facade retains the compact feeling, but the recesses and projections of the cubic volumes and the mild color variations offer the desired visual transitions that kill monotony.

Double house in Limassol, Cyprus by Vassiliades Architects

Sunday, August 7th, 2016

Article source: Vassiliades Architects

The challenge to create two different and independent dwelling units on the same site was fulfilled successfully because they follow the same design philosophy and are consolidated visually. Morphologically the houses are characterized by orthonormal, parallelepiped volumes, lined with wood panels which stand out from the primary white volume and reflect functionally the bedrooms. The exposed concrete elements come to add strength and simplicity in whole, functioning \”compensatory \” in the warm mood that the large wood surfaces give. The design course was determined by the dedication to the functionality, when at the same time many bioclimatic elements were included in order to achieve thermal comfort for the users.

“House in Limassol V” in Cyprus by Vassiliades Architects

Friday, August 5th, 2016

Article source: Vassiliades Architects

In this bioclimatic nearly zero energy building (nZEB), we followed a minimalistic direction morphologically, in order to distinguish the actual architectural features without unnecessary decorations and exaggerations, following modernistic standards. The main idea is analyzed in the synthesis of three basic volumes, which are separated by their function and their material – white for the common spaces, wood for the private spaces and exposed concrete for the parking. The bioclimatic character of the building played equally important role, since the two main volumes are ‘open’ to the south and ‘turn their back’ to the north. In this context, the rotation of the ground floor white volume is included in order to be located exactly perpendicular to the south. Similarly, the volume of wood floor overhangs by 3 meters to the east, creating a shelter for the users, ideal for the evening hours. The environmental orientation of the house, is completed with the use of thermal insulated materials and active systems, such as a 3kW photovoltaic system.
