The main task of the concept was to offer a hotel or apart-hotel, which will be relevant in this location, because Larnaca, unlike other large cities of Cyprus, is only beginning to develop. It is an atmospheric old town, combining new hotels, historic churches and abandoned old residential buildings in the heart of the city. It is a city where people from all over the world live and where many cultures intersect.

The concept was developed for the reconstruction of an existing building in the historical part of the city, which was built in several stages in the 1950s and 1970s. This was the main difficulty of the project, because each floor had a different shape on the plan, area, ceiling height and number of windows/terraces. To develop the concept, we communicated with local architects, designers and Ukrainian engineers. The planning concept proposed takes into account all the limitations and features of the building.

City hotel. The 4-story building will include a restaurant, common areas, a viewing terrace, and room stock:

  • Standard - 14
  • The standard is improved - 17
  • Suite - 2
  • Total rooms: 33
  • Area of the room fund: 536 m2
  • Total areas: 536 m2

Apartment hotel. The building will include a breakfast room, a co-working space, a terrace and a pool on the top floor.

Number of apartments by category:

  • Smart - 9 pcs
  • Studio - 14 pcs
  • 1-room - 4 pcs
  • Total rooms: 27
  • Area of the room fund: 962 m2
  • General areas: 601 m2
  • Area for rent: 52 m2

Both concepts involve the use of the last, mansard floor of the building - from the terrace and/or pool of which a view of the city will open.
On the first floor of the building there are 2-level rooms instead of standard ones with their own terraces, and on the last floor there is a swimming pool on the terrace, the load of which is borne by the existing frame of the building.

In the rooms, the main task was to convey the atmosphere and culture of the old town as much as possible thanks to the furniture and art objects of local masters.
