The house is located in an urban area of Nicosia. The concept for the house was to be turned towards the internal yard and that is why an L shape was given. All the spaces, from the ground floor to the first floor are directed towards the internal yard, where the swimming pool is placed. For the same reason, the house was designed in such a way to look “closed” from the road and “open” from the internal yard. The side of the house that is visible from the road is built by several extensive blind walls, in various compositions, while the part that is visible from the yard is composed by horizontal extensive slabs without beams, which are mostly brought forward by sub pillars of circular intersection and, the large glass opening between the slabs. The sliding glass doors are assembled in a way that the internal and external spaces are unified, to be seen as one.
