Clelia Tower: A building with 'hanging' gardens, a modern proposal for Limassol!

* NOTE: All the tributes of All About Limassol (as the Official Guide of Limassol) aim to ONLY highlight the special aspects of this wonderful city, so that everyone can be aware of the unique Experiences it offers. Under no circumstances do they have any promotional or nominal value, nor do they serve the interests of Companies, Municipalities, Organizations or Individuals.

An architectural competition for a new residential development in Limassol has resulted in a proposal for a uniquely interesting building featuring hanging gardens. This design was proposed by Dutch architectural firm NL Architects, with the belief that our city is the ideal space to host a building that is literally overflowing with greenery.

The project is called Clelia Tower and it involves the construction of a complex of luxurious apartments of approximately 300 sq. m. each. The uniqueness of this proposal is due to its additional structures, which are approximately 50 sq. m and added to the main core of the building. These are meant to be used as green areas, and can also host kidney-shaped pools or Jacuzzis. With these add-ons, the structure takes on an eye-catching sculptural form.

The hanging gardens are designed with a mechanism that stores rainwater in hidden containers that is then used to water the plants as needed. The slender tower is located on a large plot of land that allows for a generous natural setting, as thanks to the modest footprint of the building, the landscape gets center stage. The ground floor features a spacious lobby that includes a gallery and a bar / restaurant. A wellness domain is located on the first floor, and offers space for medical, fitness and meditation facilities.
