Renaissance is a boutique residential block consisting of 4 one-bedroom flats, 4 two-bedroom flats and 2 three-bedroom flats. Inspired by the history of the area but with a modern note, the building consists of a raw podium made of arches that is presented as the base of the building.
The frame and the main body of the building are made of bare dark colour render material depicting the roots of a place, which will always exist no matter how much time passes.
Thin decorative elements consisting of arches and vertical columns embrace the building, regenerating the past which also acts as a sun shading system and gives more privacy to the tenants from the surrounding buildings.
Surrounded by flowers and vegetation, the building aims to create a new way of living to the residents, providing a distinctive experience. The boundary between interior-exterior blends smoothly as every apartment has wide openings facing the large verandas which include its own private garden zone.
The vertical landscape covers approximately 50% of the building’s façade area. This exceptional living environment is working like a natural “brise soleil”. The plants will act as a natural sun control shielding the apartments from direct sun during summer while admitting a maximum of sunlight in winter.
A variety of Cypriot climbing and spreading plants will be continually transformed by the cyclic movements of the different seasons. Old olive trees continue this vertical landscape on the ground floor of the building. It creates the link to the adjacent road and gets a part of the scenery of the area.
