NEW CYPRUS NEWS AGENCY OFFICES IN NICOSIA

Distinction in the European architectural competition for the design of the "Cyprian News Agency" office building in the city of Nicosia, Cyprus

The proposed building seeks to project and promote the agency’s identity as a leading organisation in the communications media sector, both locally and on the global stage. The facade concept, characterised by fluc­tuating horizontal bands, is an expression of the flows that form the underlying dynamic of the organisation’s continual movement and information flows, whilst also opening a dialogue with the urban traffic flows on the adjacent freeway. The facade proposal plays an active part in forming the internal micro­climate, using terracotta cladding to support the porous character of the building skin, whilst the planting, which exists on the exte­rior and also breaks into the interior, contrib­utes to the bioclimatic nature of the building
