Santa Roza is an asymmetrical landmark tower located in Nicosia’s new commercial district.
It is a mixed use project incorporating offices, luxury apartments and retail units, with an open-air terrace at the top where the building’s users will enjoy picturesque views across the surrounding mountains while entertaining staff and visitors.
The tower is designed to respond to the various demands of climate, culture and economics. It features an integrated design approach to create a fresh, inspirational work environment, which is also cost effective in terms of operations and maintenance. The offices are flexible and adapt to the needs of clients, with the potential of single or multiple tenant occupancy on each floor with a shared lobby area. The tower includes a double skin curtain wall system; it is designed as a light structure, which will protect the conventional double glazed inner façade allowing for views and natural ventilation.
Santa Roza Tower encompasses 37,800 m² of space including basement car parking, rising to 29 storeys on a shallow plot. This modest footprint makes it possible to flood the interiors with natural daylight and ventilation, the latter running through the floor while the ceiling void is minimised to contain the lighting grid and sprinklers.
