This is a single family energy efficient residential project designed by our Architects Giorgos Nearchou and Antia Perikleous. Moreover, the structural study of it has been prepared by our Civil Engineer Andreas N. Savva. All the MEP of it has been prepared by our Mechanical Engineer Costas Petrides and our Electrical Engineer Petros Petrou.
This two-storey house is located in Latsia, Lefkosia, in a quiet suburban area. One of the main objectives for this project, was to create an Energy Efficient building for the climatic conditions of Cyprus. While trying to achieve a low energy consumption building, we also focused on keeping the cost in budget. For this reasons, we have eliminated all the Thermal Bridges of the building with high performance low cost materials.
The roof of the building has a U-Value of 0.19W/m²K. The walls have a U-Value of 0.21W/m²K and the windows (uPVC) have an average Uw of 1.2W/m²K.
Instead of just minimizing the energy consumption of the building we also have incorporated a 5KW photovoltaic system to cover more than 60% of the energy requirements of the house. This 5kw Photovoltaic system is carefully placed on the roof of the house, benefiting from the South-facing orientation of the building. Also, the system is well concealed among other mechanical systems on the roof.
This project has been completely designed by the Architects and Engineers of sa.ne studio. What is more, our Architects Giorgos Nearchou & Antia Perikleous have designed the interior as well. Also,they designed a custom made kitchen, the closets, a walk-n closet, a bookshelf, the TV/fireplace area, the Lighting etc.
