The site is located 5 minutes from the city of Nicosia. It is an area named ‘’Eleonas’’, a notable district of Nicosia that was known for its olive groves until 1963, today there is not a single olive tree left. The proposal is an opportunity to reclaim some of the lost greenery and initiate a connection to an adjacent public park taking advantages of its landscape views. The design establishes a dialogue between context and nature and creates an environment rooted in the memory of the place. The joy and beauty of nature in our home was the beginning of our biophilia concept for the house.
