http://START-UP INCUBATOR The project which was given to us is about the design of an innovative entrepreneurship centre(start-up incubator). The site is located in Pera Oreinis village in Cyprus due to the fact that it is a village which deals with a lot of activities and it also gathers young businessmen. The building is divided to six units: reception, laboratories, galleries, cafes, meeting rooms, and an outdoor area with lots of activities for the employees. By analyzing the area, I have observed its structure and I got influenced by the houses’ indoor yards. In this way, I use the indoor yard as my main concept to create places of activities for the residents, in order to bring closer the residents with the new employees. In this idea, I have also included public routes as another way of bringing closer the old residents with the new ones. Furthermore, from the analysis of the area, it is observed that there is not any limit between the unit and the river and hence, it is chosen to be created a hard limit by locating the office building on the first floor and the cafeteria with a library on the ground floor. In this way, a visual contact towards the green of the river is achieved. For privacy reasons the resident units are located near the village in order to be quieter. Beyond the hard limit which is created from the river side, it is chosen to maintain the cultivated land because it has fruitful plants which can keep the residents engrossed with.
