Architect George Papadopoulos branched out of his usual set and stage designs to build the 'House in Lemesos' home for his family.
The home embraces a neoclassic concept, with most rooms a-lined with the internal courtyard, providing privacy for the owners. With the mountain air passing through the roof and its leafy surroundings, the house cools itself naturally with no air conditioning system required.
Implications - As a result of the recent economic downturn, people are favoring designs that can offer them savings in other areas; be it solar panels, energy-efficient appliances or simply better ventilation -- spending more initially can help consumers save in the long run. By creating products and services that boast long-term benefit, consumers will be more willing to spend more initially.
