John Marie Offices


A new mixed-use complex was built on a major intersection at Spyros Kyprianou Avenue. The permeable ground floor, connects the streets via two entrances. On both streets, the building invite passers-by to visit the building at ground floor level, including, shops and café.

Building volumes of varying scales, which become increasingly smaller towards the top, are situated above the ground floor with its visible structure made of concrete, glass and aluminium panels. These volumes initially follow the curved street lines up to the eaves height of the surrounding buildings. Above this, the structures are recessed. This composition generates terraces and a planted roofscape.

The façade is structured by slender, anodised aluminium profiles that are fully recyclable. The office floors located on the upper floors have a hybrid construction, allowing for flexible layouts ranging from conservative cubicle offices to modern office landscapes with large, interconnected areas. The high flexibility of the floor plans, energy and resource efficiency as well as a high level of user comfort form the basis of the holistic sustainability concept.
