This reinforced concrete apartment building is located in Aglantzia, Nicosia and is composed of pilotis, which is utilized as parking and storage area, and two upper stories, which accommodate residential flats. Particular emphasis was placed on the increase of the torsional stiffness of the building, in order to improve its behaviour under horizontal seismic actions. The latter was achieved by proper modification of the columns’ section and orientation.
