Best Tall Build­ing award for White Walls – home to EY Cyprus

Financial Mirror (Cyprus) - - FRONT PAGE -

Jean Nou­vel’s White Walls, home to EY Cyprus’ Ni­cosia Of­fice since Novem­ber 2014, has been named the Best Tall Build­ing in Europe 2016, by the Coun­cil on Tall Build­ings and Ur­ban Habi­tat (CTBUH). It was se­lected among 132 build­ings due to its dis­tinc­tive char­ac­ter­is­tics, in­clud­ing the nat­u­ral flow of light, per­fo­rated walls, lofty bal­conies and the in­ter­nal es­paliered gar­dens. The build­ing, a project by Nice Day De­vel­op­ments Ltd., is 67 me­tres high and is one of the tallest struc­tures in Cyprus.

White Walls won the award against com­pe­ti­tion from a large num­ber of signi?cant Euro­pean build­ings, in­clud­ing the Euro­pean Cen­tral Bank Tower in Frankfurt, the Al­lianz Tower in Mi­lan, the Gratta­cielo In­tesa San­paolo Torino in Turin, and the Al­lianz Tower in Is­tan­bul. In Novem­ber 2016, the Main Jury of the CTBUH will an­nounce the win­ner of the Best Tall Build­ing World­wide from among the four re­gional award win­ners: White Walls rep­re­sent­ing Europe, Via 57 West rep­re­sent­ing the Amer­i­cas, the Shang­hai Tower rep­re­sent­ing Asia and Aus­trala­sia, and the Cube rep­re­sent­ing the Mid­dle East and Africa.

This gem of a build­ing was cho­sen in 2014 to house the new Ni­cosia head of­fice of EY Cyprus. The choice of Jean Nou­vel Tower was in line with EY’s global op­er­at­ing model and the broader con­cept of a “Work­place of the Fu­ture”, based on both its unique aes­thetic and its en­hanced func­tion­al­ity that en­cour­ages team­ing, flex­i­bil­ity and col­lab­o­ra­tion.
