Gallery: Old Shoe Factory Converted Into Bright & Colorful Architecture...

What was once a shoe factory in the industrial part of Engomi, Cyprus is now a bright and colorful academic building for the Architecture Research Center at the University of Nicosia. Designed by Petros Konstantinou and Yiorgos Hadjichristou Architects, the ARC features multi-functional space, sliding doors and a bright, naturally daylit interior - perfect conditions for the study of architecture. The building was re-skinned with colored polycarbonate panels which transmit a pleasant light inside. Completed in 2011 and still very new, the building will over time be covered in vegetation to provide additional shading.
