This reinforced concrete apartment building will be erected in Aglantzia, Nicosia and is composed of pilotis, which will be utilized as parking area and two upper stories, which accommodate residential flats. During the structural design, particular emphasis was given on the increase of the torsional stiffness of the building, in order to minimize its torsional response under horizontal seismic actions. The aforementioned was achieved by proper modification of the columns’ section and orientation. Moreover, a structural peculiarity of this building was the multilevel raft foundations.
