This is a contemporary residential project which focuses on maximising the relationship between light-filled spacious interiors and the predominantly sun-drenched outside. It embodies elements of modern architecture, but is not constrained by a precise definition - in that way it is unique in style and composition.
The project comprises two villas set in their own grounds, together with a low-rise apartment block with landscaped gardens and communal leisure facilities.
Conceived as a high-value, high-life development, the specifications dictated the extensive use of premium materials throughout. At every level - price, performance, functionality, environmental - no effort was spared to capitalise on the opportunity to create a project that would completely satisfy owner expectations.
Located on the coastal reaches of Agios Tychonas, at the eastern end of Limassol's prime residential area, the site lent itself perfectly to a dual-height development due to it's slightly elevated position overlooking the sea, which is around 50m away.
Research revealed that there was significant demand for villas and apartments in the immediate vicinity. The layout matches the buyer profile, and appearance and finish is in sympathy with adjoining properties. Both the villas and the apartments are designed to take full advantage of the tremendous views across Limassol Bay. This is achieved by extensive use of full-height glass at every opportunity; that and strategically-positioned deep balconies with cantilevered overhangs.
Spacious living areas and master bedrooms dominate the layouts, and these blend seamlessly with the balconies so as to effectively enlarge the useable space and bring the outside in. Comfortable supplementary bedrooms and bathrooms are set towards the rear.
A prominent feature of the project is the use of new materials for the interiors and the exteriors. And the composite use of now traditional finishing materials - energy-efficient glass, thermal aluminium window frames, HPL panels with decorative finishes, wooden fire-rated doors, and sound-insulating concrete - has been carefully merged with the latest building technologies.
Surrounding garden space plays an important part in the overall design. Here we have integrated leisure and recreation features - a swimming pool and sun terrace for the apartment dwellers, and private overflow pools and outdoor bar for the villas. Roof gardens also enhance the overall day and night living experience.
Internally, there is extensive use of Ceasarstone (a synthetic white marble) along with natural white marble and grey ceramic floor tiles. An overall sense of minimalism is conveyed throughout - notably in the kitchen area, with its white laminated cabinets, and by the use of recessed LED lighting in suspended plasterboard ceilings, and discreet in-room outlets for the integrated HVAC system.
In keeping with the highest environmental standards, lighting is LED throughout, and heating/cooling systems are energy efficient for the lowest possible running costs.
