hamonic + masson envisions limassol tower with 'independent island' swimming pools

french architecture firm hamonic + masson & associés generates a visionary residential tower concept to capture the atmosphere and beauty of cyprus. planned to overlook the sparkling mediterranean horizon of the southern coastal city of limassol, the tower introduces a unique proposal for an expressive structural system and new type of dwelling. taking influence from such naturally occurring geometries as the floral corolla, the tower rises from nature with soaring columns that bloom into exterior swimming pools and planted green areas, each linking directly to an individual unit.

envisioned by lead architect bastien capon of hamonic + masson & associés, the limassol tower design strategy creates a condition of ‘independent islands.’ with the swimming pool balcony system integrated into the exterior structure, the new type of living experience — where exterior meets interior — is expressed in the architectural language of the project. the corolla system is also found throughout the green landscape at the ground level.

at the landscaped ground level, hamonic + masson & associés introduces a cluster of platforms and sunshades which echo the geometries of the limassol tower. this condition serves as a continuation of the project’s distinctive and sculptural concept. the transparency of the building’s facade and organization lends maximized, unobstructed sea views. a sliding glass door is the only element which separates the living area and the balcony of each transformative unit, allowing residents the atmosphere of an exterior terrace.
