An architect couple’s live-work space;
Our own Live work was the most influential live work project / downtown project / reuse project.
Two buildings-a 1900 listed home and a 1960 concrete 13 m tall factory-both parts of Cyprus’ history-have come together to form a residence/loft housed in the ex factory, and an architectural practice housed in the listed building.
Each has been restored to its true nature, and both open up to a courtyard surrounded by 5m tall walls that protect the house and garden from dust and the hot afternoon sun.
The garden is set out as a series of outdoor rooms around the center-a deck with a pond. The pictures speak for themselves.
