Residence & Dance School in Latsia
Client: Panayiota Giannaki
Architect: MICHALIS IOANNOU ARCHITECTS
Size: 660 m²
This mixed-use development is situated in Latsia, Nicosia and it is composed of two structurally autonomous structures, separated by seismic clearance. The segment on the frontage of the plot, which comprises a basement and an aboveground storey, is utilized as a dance school. The two-storey segment on the backside of the plot is used as a residence. Some of the illustrious features of this project are the primary beams of the dance school, which are spanning distances reaching up to 10 m, the tapered section inverted beams, the optimized tapered section cantilevers slabs and the sufficient dimensioning of the seismic gap for the avoidance of structural poundings between the two adjacent structures.
