Set upon a beachfront parcel outside the resort town of Limassol on the south coast of Cyprus, this enclave of luxury homes offers spectacular 180-degree views of the Mediterranean Sea. These 14 individually-designed homes, which range from 405 to 575 square meters, are designed with a distinctly modern aesthetic that combines clean lines with monolithic forms. Bold cubes in contrasting materials provide dramatic frames for the limitless views, and enclose luxurious indoor-outdoor spaces, in a unique, “five-star modern” style. In direct contrast to the buildings’ stark outlines, natural, locally-sourced materials, such as local gavro stone, copper and white plaster, provide a direct reference to regional architecture and culture. On this arid island, a sustainable approach to design and construction was paramount – locally-sourced materials, passive cooling, solar and wind power, and gray-water use all contribute to the sustainable design.
