Theo David Architects Project Shortlisted in World Architecture Festival 2011


We are very happy to announce that TDA has been shortlisted in the Housing category of the World Architecture Festival 2011. The “Gladstonos 22” housing development in Nicosia was selected by WAF along with 15 other international housing projects and will be presented to the WAF jurors in early November where a winner will be announced. More than 700 entries from 69 countries were evaluated in the various project categories.

“Gladstonos 22” is a comprehensive residential development designed in association with Nicos Mavronicolas Architects for J&P Ltd and is located on a landmarked street defined by excellent examples of modernist and mid-20th century residential architecture in Nicosia, Cyprus.

The design concept reflects challenging and contrasting environments; to the east the Gladstonos Street private residential streetscape; and to the west a seasonal river that defines a linear park lined with towering eucalyptus trees.

There are four multi-leveled detached townhouses lining Gladstonos Street. The center section accommodates garden and penthouse units entered through a sculpture court. Ground level, duplex and penthouse loft-type units, with undulating facades and deep terraces facing the river, are integrated into the natural landscape of the riverbed and linear park. All of the 34 units are served by underground parking and servant quarters.
