In 2012, the City of Lemesos held a competition for architects to propose designs for the Lemesos Museum of Art in the shorline district. One of the competition’s aims was to contribute to the consolidation of a cultural center composed of iconic architectural and programmatic attractants, projecting a singular and contemporary identity on behalf of the city. Our proposal integrates and reveals the complex layers of history and urbanism that weave through this site, where the Lemesos Museum of Art will be situated for years to come. Acknowledging these complexities, the strategy was to adopt the existing, diagonal circulation axis which generated a binary museum organization of permanent and temporary collections. Interstitial perimeter zones create a buffer between institution and city while enabling impromptu events and large scale installations a visibility beyond the walls of the museum.
