Refurbishment of office premises for the European Program Support Office (EUPSO) in Nicosia, Cyprus (2008)



The former Hotel Atlantis, a prominent yellow stone building in the very center of Nicosia's walled city, were to be transformed into an administrative building. The addition of a new internal flight of stairs next to the big conference room resolved many problems at the same time: without losing usable space and substance, this new efficient layout for the three floors enables a spacious, representative and secure entrance situation and two escape routes. On a strictly limited budget the fully equipped office building of about 1100 sqm could be put to use after a three month construction time.
