Ag. Tychonas, Limassol, Cyprus
The design of the house had to solve two very important issues. The steep slope of the plot forced the creation of a house in a way that maintains the specific morphology without affecting its functionality. Also the unobstructed view to the sea should be maintained through the premises of the house in the best possible way. The design of the spaces on various staggered levels create a house that follows the slope of the mountain. In all areas, large glass openings have been designed around the perimeter to maintain the unobstructed view to the coastal front. The use of large glass surfaces is also related to the design and size of large cantilevers. In various parts of the house, vertical skylights are created internally and externally for natural air ventilation of the house. A characteristic element is the stone wall of the fence on the facade of the house. Its height offers privacy at the level of the public road and internally it turns into a waterfall. The distance of the wall from the interior glass surface creates the feeling of more space enclosed on both sides by the water element.
