Cyprus University, Cyprus

A detailed environmental survey formed the backbone of a masterplan for a new 4,000-student campus for Cyprus University.  Our analysis of all the physical and planning factors affecting the 100-acre site led to a design which allowed the new teaching, residential and leisure facilities to work in harmony with the surrounding environment and ecology.  In 2009 we were invited back to Cyprus to take part in the university’s own research to measure the success of the landscaping strategies, such as water capture and recyling.  The best strategies will inform future design phases.
