Single family house in Lacatamia

This is a single family house in a plot near the old airport of Lacatamia near Nicosia, where height restrictions still apply.
Safety regulations demand all built volumes to be restricted by the Protection Zone of Flights with max. height 5m lowering with an 14% inclination.

Scapearchitecture decided to develop the house building using the limits creatively, to overcome the obstacle by making it part of the design, so that the house would have a distinct presence in this area.
We met the challenge by designing a house that takes shape and form using the restriction of the Protection Zone as an actual surface of the building, as an inclined roof to cover all “public” spaces of the house.
