Feilden Clegg Bradley scoops major gallery scheme in Cyprus - images

  • Comment
Feilden Clegg Bradley Architects (FCBA) has seen off a raft of the UK's leading practices to win the competition to design a new art gallery in Nicosia, Cyprus.

Launched last year, the contest attracted some of the best British practices, and is part of a wider development aiming to create a cultural quarter in the island's divided capital.

FCBA won the chance to design the gallery with this design (pictured above), defeating the likes of David Chipperfield, Niall McLaughlin, Terry Pawson and Tony Fretton.

The scheme is backed by the AG Leventis Foundation, a not-for-profit private charity which has a record of promoting culture and arts internationally.

Suzie Lloyd of FCBA said: 'This is a fantastic win for us, drawing on the studio's experience of the arts and sustainable design-led projects.

'The mix of gallery spaces, restaurant and apartments creates an interesting dynamic on the site.

'The building form is eroded, creating a tenuous play between solid and void, generating a series of courtyards both public and private - 'places' which connect themselves back to the city of Nicosia.'
