This reinforced concrete apartment building will be erected in Strovolos, Nicosia and is composed of pilotis and four upper stories. Particular emphasis was placed on the increase of the torsional stiffness of the building, in order to improve its behaviour under horizontal seismic actions. The latter was achieved by modifying appropriately the columns’ section and orientation. The building’s structural type has been classified as wall equivalent dual system along the one principle horizontal direction and as ductile uncoupled wall system along the other horizontal direction.
