Images of its shortlisted designs released
RHWL has released these images of its shortlisted designs for a new electricity company headquarters building in Larnaca, Cyprus. The scheme, produced with engineer Battle McCarthy, is designed to create both a landmark building and a new image for the client. The proposal came third in the competition, behind two local entries. The north-facing elevation of the building is clad in local sandstone, with selected glazed slots providing good insulation and privacy. The social hub, incorporating visitor areas, is clad in glass, presenting an open elevation. Solar gain is minimised by a specially constructed shading device.
