Project description:
This six-storey, reinforced concrete, apartment building with basement and pilotis, was constructed in Agios Dometios, Nicosia. Both the basement and the pilotis are utilized as parking spaces, while the mezzanine is used as a mechanical equipment floor. The upper stories and the penthouse accommodate residential flats. The architectural peculiarity of the building and the resulting plan irregularities necessitated the introduction and the careful positioning of properly sized shear walls, for the minimization of the torsional displacements and the enhancement of the seismic response of the building.
