RE: architecture preserves informality in cyprus college of art refurbishment concept

 

 

 

the conceptual extension and refurbishment of the ‘cyprus college of art’ is a fitting project for decentralized studio RE: architecture. both school and firm were founded on unconventional thought, providing a necessary escape from the at times confining nature of institutional understanding and approach.

in keeping with the school’s informal nature, architectural design is conceived not as new, but as continuation. organic, evolving, RE: architecture offers an emancipated environment where visiting artists can truly surpass the limitations of day-to-day production. the ‘cyprus college of art’ retains its localized feel, with additions subtle and bearing an expressive quality like that of the individuals it hosts.
