Situated in Limassol in close proximity to the Public Library the ‘Library Lofts’ development is a signature residential development in the Kentro district, Limassol.
The design vocabulary for this key urban component is both classic and contemporary, with clearly delineated volumes. The facade is articulated using a system of arches – creating a distinct external profile emphasizing the verticality of the overall development, as well as, breaking the volume down to the local scale of the adjoint context.
This dynamic expression draws reference from the historic arches in the old Limassol. At the top of the building, a cut-out in the roof gives the posibility to hide technical equipment and solar panels to ensure the arches can stand out clearly and elegantly.
The building volume is raised on stilts to give the building an overall expression of lightness and to allow for covered and secure parking with direct access to the entrance lobby. At first floor level a cut-out in the building volume ensures daylight for the apartments and creates sheltered green spaces with lush landscaping, creating a sumptuous and welcoming area for the residents. Each flat will furthermore have seperate balconies angled to optimize outlook and orientation.
The modern qualities of the development are further enhanced by the sophisticated material palette that combines clear glazing, stucco system together with exposed concrete. With its prime location and cutting edge design, the ‘Library Lofts’ development creates a new focal point, setting a new benchmark in terms of quality and expression for the area.
