Project Description

Christos Avraam Residence

Client: Christos Avraam
Size: 258 m²
Building type: Two-story residence
Project description:
This residence, situated in Agios Andreas, Nicosia, comprises of an existing reinforced concrete structure and is going to be extended in plan and in height with a steel structure. The poor energy performance of the existing residence is going to be upgraded while the new structure is going to be thermally insulated. The challenge of the particular project lies in the derivation of a uniform thermal insulation solution, which would be suitable and efficient for the two heteroclite structures and it will not result in architectural abnormalities. Moreover, a low emissivity glass was selected for the extended glass facades, which were a significant source of energy losses.
