CYPRUS GOVERNMENT CENTRE IN NIKOSIA
INTERNATIONALER WETTBEWERB 1972 1 st. PREIS
52'293 M2 BÜROFLÄCHE ; 12 SEPERATE GOVERNMENT MINISTRIES, 2'500 ANGESTELLTE ; 2'500 UG PARKPLÄTZE .
In 1973 we were invited by the Government of Cyprus to enter an international architectural competition to prepare designs for a new Grovernment centre in Nicosia. Our design Illustrated here won the first Prize.
52,293 sq.m. of office accommodation was required for the 12 seperate Government Ministries housing a staff of 2 500 together with attendant recreation faciliities an parking for 2 500 cars. The development is to be phased over a number of years so that existing Government offices on the site can be used in the Interim.
The new Government centre is to be built on the 7.6 Hect. site of the existing colonial administration on the outskirts of Nicosia overlooking the landscaped areas on the Banks of the Pedieos River.
The design is based on a modular development with the indivdual Ministry buildings linked by vertical circulation and service Towers.
This system allows the new building tp proceed with a minimum of distubance to existing facilities on the site. The overall development is designed as a traffic free pedstrian " spine" from which the various Ministries grow. The offices themselves are arranged in banked tiers building up in height from the site Perimeter to this ist center. This arrangement maintains a human scale throughout the devlopment compatible with the exsisting townscape and sympathetic with traditional building forms.
A feature of the scheme is the central covered Agora which rises through five stories with hanging gardens an flying bridges to create an impressive focal point in the design. The General public as well as staff will be encouraged to use this space together with the extensive landdcaped areas which are to surround the offices. An open air amphitheatre for music and drama is included in the design next to the Agora to encourage public participation An artifical lake with spray fountains will add live and be a welcome contast to the arid nature of the summer scene in Nicosia. Internally office spaces are completely flexible - Layouts can be cellular open plan of landcaped (burolandschaft) depending on requirements. These offices will enclose internal courts -the intention being that the courts with Gardens planting troughs,and pools should cerate the atmosphere of a pleasant shaded garden where scented blossoms brilliant foliage and dappled reflections produce a pleasant cool environment protected from the heat and glare of the Mediterranean sun. Special attention has been paid to the internal Environment. All Departments are air conditioned and the Problem of solar heat gain , sky glare and reflected heat are minimised by setting back the glazed wall 1.8 metres behind the structure giving a sun screen which protects the interiors form all but low altitude morning and evening winter sun. Extra solar protection is provided by bronze metalised heat reflecting glare reducing glass. Terrace planting adjacent to office Windows will cut down reflected solar heat and glare.
Construction is to be in reinforced concrete -the building superstructure being in a rationalised system of precast circular columns beams and floor troughs. These basic Elements can be manufactured locally. The structural module is a 12 meter x 7.8 meter rectangular table. This system terminates at stair and service Towers at 60 meter centres. The finish to the concrete will be in a white marble Aggregate.
Estimated Cost: 6 million Pounds.
