The project will be located adjacent to the St Raphael Marina which is located 6 miles East of Limassol centre and is part of the luxury 5 star St Raphael Resort. The only private Marina in Cyprus, St Raphael has over 230 berths for yachts upto 30m LOA and a world class luxury resort on its doorstep this marina can cater for all.
The development itself will be located on a 7433 sq m (1.58 Acres) south facing seafront plot accessed from the main B2 costal road. The property has direct access to the beach and a seafront promenade leading to the Marina. The plot is surrounded by low rise super-prime private residences and therefore offers undisturbed 360 degree view at a height of over 10m.
The concept for this luxury development was developed in order to maximize south facing terraces. The local cypriot norms allow for a limit of 25% of the overall internal area to be added as 'covered veranda' unless the terrace is open to the sky. In order to exceed the 25%, every floor was offset by 1.5m to create a large area of 'uncovered terrace' on each floor and resulting in supersized seafacing terraces on each floor.
Offsetting each floor resulted in a building with an incline of over 20 degree. This prsented unique technical challenges in terms of structure and vertical transportation, but gives the building a totally unique look which is emphasised by articulating each floor as stacked on top of one another.
The building consist of all south facing luxury 2 bedroom, 3 bedroom and 4 bedroom duplex apartments.
