Jean Nouvel’s Cyprus tower

French studio Ateliers Jean Nouvel has built a tower block in Nicosia, Cyprus, featuring perforated walls and wide balconies that are both bestrewn with plants. Completed last year next to Eleftheria Square, the 67-metre-high Tower 25 is one of the tallest structures in the Cypriot capital, and includes a mix of apartments, offices and shops.
To suit Cyprus’ Mediterranean climate, Ateliers Jean Nouvel designed the building around what it describes as a “natural brise soleil” – a facade where numerous openings are infilled with plants.
