Design of a multi-storey building "Tower of Limassol" in the city of Limassol in Cyprus
Τhe Tower of Limassol is a response on the demand for a panoramic view of the city and the port. The main problem of the project arises from the opposite direction of the view of the lower floors compared to that of the overlying floors. The problem was resolved by the repeated rotation of the building around a central axis, providing each floor with the optimal view. The level of the ground rises and is being transformed along with the rotation around the axis of the stairwell. The building shell is formed by horizontal blinds which operate according to the rules of sustainability, protecting the building from the high level of sun exposure in Cyprus. The shops are located on the ground floor of the building, the offices on upper floors and on the top floor a luxury apartment with a view over the city of Limassol.
