Electricity Authority Regional Headquarters, Larnaca
2004 – Competition Entry
This competition entry was an opportunity to create a building establishing its own sense of place whilst satisfying the demands of the EAC for a contained yet publicly accessible building.
The design seeks to encourage creative interaction between the 1000 occupants by connecting all the workspaces with a central rising atrium that acts as a place for meeting, working and circulating.
Departments were identified as simple yet bold sculptural forms.
The spaces between these buildings form small piazzas – social spaces that link the buildings of the masterplan. To reinforce the object – like quality of each building, their massiveness and materiality are expressed.
For environmental efficiency, the openings vary in width according to the orientation of each facade.
