Dias Architecture Studio completed House in Archaggelos, a modern residence with an original architecture located in Nicosia, Cyprus. The brief of the project requested a design that would be able to cut off the continuous noise coming from the neighboring street: “The inclined position of the house gives the impression that the building is pushed away from the noisy northwest boundary, bending towards the southeast external area and thus protecting it from the undesired noise pollution. The northwest wall of the house is mainly compact, with narrow window openings, leaving all the big window openings on the more private southeast façade.” A wooden cantilever structure surrounds the building with the purpose of adding a layer of shade.

The interiors are airy and spacious, with a double height living room acting as the social core of the residence: “Entering the two-story house, one meets all the communal living areas in a semi-open plan design. Both living room areas and the kitchen open towards the southeast private courtyard. On the first floor, at the end of a bridge crossing the living and dining areas, we find the three bedrooms of the family.” The two levels are connected by a glass staircase, which also helps reflect more natural light inside.

An example of a huge success is Heneghan Peng Architects’ Giant’s Causeway Visitors’ Centre in Antrim, Northern Ireland. Using the large difference in level across the site, the architects created two folds in the landscape. Bold, but not conflicting with the rather bleak natural environment, these folds draw all the man-made areas together and create one fitting man-made break in the natural landscape. In the words of the architects themselves, There is no longer a building and a landscape, but building becomes landscape and the landscape itself remains spectacular and iconic

Energy during the construction process was saved by using FSC-certified glulam timber instead of steel to create the building’s distinctive wavy roof, while the store’s external walls use hemclad, a highly innovative insulator made from hemp, which, like all plants, absorbs CO2 from the atmosphere as it grows. An 80,000 litre water tank below ground provides water for the store’s toilets and waters the site’s green wall’, which provides natural insulation, acts as an all-natural pollution filter near the car park, and helps to encourage biodiversity. The result is a building that uses a fraction of the energy of structures of a similar size, and is still very popular with local shoppers.
