UDSarchitects and EDSA present their masterplan design for Aetheria Heights project. Located on a prominent hillside overlooking the City of Pegia, this 25.5 hectare site provides pristine southern views to the Mediterranean Sea. The design will bring luxury Villas, Flats, a Research and Development Center, a Rehabilitation Center, a Village Square and public green spaces to the area overlaid with a series of pedestrian footpaths, bicycle routes and green spaces.
All residences are oriented to offer views and outdoor spaces to residents, while pedestrian paths and private roads provide gently sloping routes through the site, combining with the buildings to define a number of small neighborhood “plazas”. The paths always find a gentle sloping path leading pedestrians, bicyclists and residents comfortably across the settlement. The resulting urban fabric combines a green network of effortless circulation encouraging a lively atmosphere and an efficient flow of pedestrians and cyclists maintaining at the same time the privacy of the residents. The design creates a new open space identity but more importantly will give neighbors and visitors the sensations of nature.
We, at UDSarchitects know that the future is green energy, sustainability, renewable energy and we are ready for the future! The settlement is envisioned to be the first Near-Zero Energy settlement in Cyprus. Aetheria Heights settlement is participating in ZERO-PLUS, an EU program, that aims to develop and implement a comprehensive, cost-effective system for Net Zero Energy settlements.
