Culture & People Architecture Nicosia’s State Gallery

Nicosia’s State Gallery

Nicosia’s State Gallery will be located opposite the Famagusta Gate, after the anticipated transformation of the SPEL building.

Now, the SPEL building has undergone a radical renovation, without affecting its external features. More specifically, it is divided into five levels (basement, ground floor, three floors and terrace) of a total area of 3.360 sq.m. The only intervention is the ceiling gathering place, a metal-glass construction.

The new suggested venues include staff offices, showrooms, library and an artefact maintenance area.

The new Gallery will focus on the modern works of the State Collection, while the existing building on Stasinou Street will transform into a gallery of Contemporary Cypriot Arts.

Architects of the project: Omeros Morphakis, Giorgos Georgiou and Christos Savva
