The design occurs on a very important crossroad in the heart of Limassol. Using contemporary architectural language, the aim was to design an elegant building of high quality and standards, giving to the town a new landmark. The idea is based on the creation of a building without corners as it is the effect of the building’s volume from the movement and rhythm of the city. The exterior refers to new science as the facade is digitalised giving the appropriate effect. The building is slightly tilted southwards for shading purposes, especially in the summer months when it is self-shaded. Simultaneously, it inclines towards its context creating an iconic feature for the city.

The building orientation utilises the best possible living conditions, using south-east orientation for office spaces, limitating the openings on the west side. Energy-saving technologies are applied and ecological building products are provided such as insulation, low-e glazing, eco-labeled products, etc. The building consists of seven floors of offices with a total area of 1550 sq m and two shops on the ground floor (350 sq m). Also, there are two basements for parking use. Externally aluminum curtain wall is used for the cladding skin and the glazing.
