Residence in Kaimakli
Architect: Christis Christodoulou
Size: 558 m²
This multistory steel residence was erected in Kaimakli, Nicosia. The requirement for prompt completion of the project directed the selection of steel fabrication. A combined structural system was selected, consisting of moment resisting frames along the one horizontal direction and of eccentric bracing system along the transverse direction. The design of the steel columns was performed with noteworthy thoroughness, to ensure the avoidance of short column failure, as a consequence of the unequal height of the composite floor slabs.
