Located in Ypsonas, Cyprus, the Radial House is a private residence designed by Tsikkinis Architecture Studio in 2013. The particular promiscuity with the adjacent dwellings and the consequential sense of “oppression” generated from the site, led the designers to exclude a horizontal architecture for a vertical design, because the house could be as isolated as possible from the context. All rooms would be aligned radially, bordering the courtyard in one direction. Each unit is therefore adjoined to its neighbor at each corner. […]

To shed light on this missed opportunity, architect Jacob Douenias and industrial designer Ethan Frier created an installation called Living Things, […]
