Project description:
This five-story apartmental development is located in Agios Dometios, Nicosia. It comprises a pilotis and four upper stories. Reinforced concrete was selected as the primary structural material, while structural steel, was secondarily implemented in the structural system. The main structural challenge was related with the design of the long cantilevers, the length of which is exceeding the 3 m and particularly with the control of their vertical deflections. A special structural scheme was applied, were wide flange structural beams were concealed in the reinforced concrete, tapered section cantilevers.
