Art Collector's House Private Residence & Art Gallery

The architecture of this house was determined by the hybrid brief that was assigned to it at its conception stage; art gallery combined with a family home. Each space has been designed with the idea of form follows function. The main entrance draws you in from the tight dense pine forest into a large double height gallery space, which houses a vast collection of sculptures and paintings. On the wings of this gallery building are the living spaces which are scaled proportionally to create the family home environment. Landscaped gardens surround the front of the house and extend into the forest.

Vakis Associates

Vakis Associates is a studio of highly creative and imaginative architects, industrial, car, interior and spatial designers, committed to designing quality buildings and interiors which are socially, economically and environmentally responsible. The practice was founded by Vakis Hadjikyriacou in 1983 and has established itself as one of Cyprus` foremost architectural firms. We are currently engaged in a broad range of projects from residential and office developments to civic buildings, hotels and interiors. Our design team of architects, civil engineers. interior and product designers has a wide range of talent and professional experience in designing and supervising advanced and well crafted complex buildings. Our work ranges in scale from interiors and small buildings to large scale architectural projects as well as urban masterplanning. Regardless of the size, context or scope, we approach each project as a unique challenge and an exciting opportunity to develop a dynamic and efficient design response. 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
