This reinforced concrete apartment building is erected in Aglantzia, Nicosia. It is composed of basement, which is utilized as parking and storage area, ground floor and two upper stories accommodating residential flats and an accessible roof, which is partially used as roof garden. Emphasis was placed on the increase of the torsional stiffness of the building in order to improve its seismic performance. The latter was achieved by proper modification of the columns’ section and orientation. Moreover, the architectural constrain of flat ceilings on the balconies of the façade, made mandatory the implementation of shallow and inverted beams.
