Residential Complexes

The Triangle

The Triangle students’ accommodation is located next to Six Towers, a larger design by the office with the same function. An evident invitation to investigate the idea of consequential design. To what extent does form follow function? Once again, it can be argued, there is a similar pattern in the conversation between a geometric, volumetric entity that is then subdivided into distinct elements. The zoning follows the same logic only this time the roof is inhabited by an elevated settlement of residences that follow their own rules.

They are deliberately alien. Rather than using the event in order to repeat an exercise, at a superficial level there is more of a statement about diversity within the urban fabric. At the urban scale there is the creation of a small square between the two volumes which does tie the elements together and make reference to a larger mechanism, the University of Nicosia.

Despite the inherent differences between any given site or program me, a concept may be repeated in a non-linear fashion
