The Laiki Lefkothea project is a contemporary residence with original design twists, developed by Tsikkinis Architecture Studio in Limassol, Cyprus. With a bold facade, the new house stands out in a countryside neighborhood, perfectly suited for family living. Natural materials such as wood and stone are showcased both outside and inside, for a calm and pleasant living environment. This is a clear case of “form embraces function”, as many elements used in the construction draw attention mostly due to their aesthetic surprise. A “shell” seems to protect the exterior of the residence; the steel units are also visible inside, creating interesting geometric effects.

As you step inside this modern home in Cyprus, you are greeted by a puzzling mix of textures, organic shapes and a minimalist color palette in white, gray and brown. Artwork is present throughout, adding elegance and dynamics to the interiors. The open-plan social areas are situated on the first level and are linked to the small courtyard. Offering a vantage point for contemplation, the bedrooms are located above, enjoying a high level of natural lighting from the large expanses of glass. Feel free to take the virtual tour and tell us what you think! [Photography courtesy of Tsikkinis Architecture Studio]

The best architects can create designs which will give clients and the public things they didn’t even realise they wanted, and this is especially important when architects are given the difficult brief of creating structures in much-loved, iconic areas.

What is new and exciting now can quickly begin to look tired and out of fashion, so the best buildings don’t just consider what will be interesting to look at now, but also how it might look to people in five, fifty or even a hundred years’ time. 2013’s hotly contested RIBA Stirling Prize went to Witherford Watson Mann Architects for their work on Astley Castle, Warwickshire. In what RIBA Past President Stephen Hodder has described as an extreme retrofit, the project essentially saw a new building inserted subtly into the heart of the old, with a new, two storey residence now hidden within the sandstone walls of the ruins of this medieval castle, to be used as a holiday home for up to eight guests
