The concept of the building is focused around vertical and horizontal axes in plan that provide views towards Limassol city and the nearby hills, creating the living spaces among with green open features. Green spaces act like pockets attached to the house, providing it with a sense of freshness and openess.
Big open spaces and floating elements where also a vital design technic to achieve ‘infinity’ features to the final result. Features such as double height entrance, living and dining space, overfloating ‘infinity’ pool and floating slabs in the kitchen space and the pavilion.
The house is described by a series of vertical axes that are connected with a strong horizontal circulation axis. This arrangement organise the space around the garden providing the best views towards Limassol city and ensuring the required privacy from the surroundings viewpoints.
The house concept is completed by the pavilion, a space that includes an entertening program with gym, pool table and an office. The pavilion is sinked into the ground and acts indepentedly from the main house volume with a light floating green roof.
