Urban Housing Complex, 2006, Limassol
A large mounted hill site area in Akrotiri forms the site for a development of 650 housing units.
The units are designed as pre-build dwellings and group into modules of 5 to 10 units accordingly. Microclimates are used as a tool for screening “noise” and creating private zones between each residence.
The living, sleeping areas open up to gardens both at the front and back. Services are used as a membering medium between each dwelling.
Canopies on the top of each house form a tectonic plate that providing shelter to the roof garden on the top. Solar cell collector panels, adding towards a greener and more economically viable strategy throughout the proposed skim.
The modules are designed so as to maximize spatial organization and allow for green zones between each building module.
