Home > Winners > #74523


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Anna House - Listed Private Home

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Private Residence

INSPIRATION:
The design was inspired by the challenge to combine the strict historic features of the original building and the modern day to day needs of a family. All the new design elements and materials are carefully chosen to create the marriage between old and new.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This is a 2 storey listed house in the centre of Limassol which has been transformed into a luxurious family home for a young couple and their children. The contemporary transformation has all living spaces on the ground floor which are arranged around a central courtyard pool area. The use of such modern interventions allows the interior to merge with the exterior through a series of large glazed openings. The exterior of the house has been restored to its original features with modern touches.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
-

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
1.5 years of Design & Development 2 years Construction

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
All the original floors were removed , restored , manufactured new in some cases and re positioned according to the new layout of the house. The same process was applied to the exterior of the house, with the replacement and restoration of all the original stone cornices and balcony architraves.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Approximate internal area of 520m² over two floors

TAGS:
restoration, interior design, architecture, listed buildings

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
There was extensive research carried out on the existing history of the property and its original architectural features. In addition, during the early months of construction, we had uncovered the footprint of another (more historic) house which was carefully restored and maid into a feature in the main living room and dining room areas, covering the timber floor with glass vitrines.

CHALLENGE:
The hardest design challenge was to develop an ''anti vandal'' paint fotr the exterior of the house. Being in a busy part of Limassol Old town the exterior house is constantly exposed to all sorts of vandalism. The paint and the stonework have a vandal proof finish developed by us during the design testing stage which allows chemical paints such as spray paint to be easily removed with just the application of a sponge and water.

We are committed to creating buildings which influence the quality of lives while at the same time we make every effort to ensure that our buildings are sustainable, financially viable, create value, minimise environmental impact and optimise energy efficiency. An appreciation of place is also essential to our working process; we never resort to a fixed architectural language, but work in response to the particularities.We use sketches, models and 3 dimensional digital tools to explore and refine our designs, translating our schemes into reality by drawing on an exceptional network of knowledge and experience that embraces every aspect of a building`s design, construction and performance. Our drive to create energy-efficient buildings does not prioritise novelty over performance and we are always open to using traditional technologies, local materials, expertise and the available industry in order to provide the best solution to our clients. Above all, we believe that environmental awareness is not a limitation to architectural potential, but an exciting challenge to produce a new generation of dynamic and environmentally responsible buildings. Our buildings are based on human, ethical and cultural parameters and we ensure that they are made out of the best available materials
