The subject of the Degree Thesis is constituted from an older architectural competition in Cyprus for the construction of Strovolos City Hall.
The particularities of the area, as the bank of the river, the planting as well as the historical old area centre had important effect in the orientation of the subject’s central idea.
The final configuration came from the segregation of the provided services and functions of the City Hall as well as the parameter of bioclimatic design.
The operation’s segregation is inside the single entity that the exterior wrapping provides. The reception constitutes the core of the whole building and it has become different by the skylight on the roof and the absence of wrapping in its entries.
The major bioclimatic parameters were applied to the offices and concern mainly heating, cooling, lighting and airing, to ensured the acceptable indoors conditions at winter-summer period and to limit the energy consumption. Other bioclimatic systems, such as atrium, skylights and buried pipes in the Municipal Theatre, were adopted for more benefits.
