The Aura Residence designed by Mobius Design Group is located in Larnaca, Cyprus. The unusual sculptural shapes of this luxurious villa are a reference to the lapping waves nearby. Constructed using stainless metal and glass, the roof canopy opens automatically depending on the external temperature. When completed, the entire residence will operate using automated hi-tech systems.
The interior space is based on 1960s Miami style. In the basement there is the spa area with views of the immersed garden. On the ground floor are located dining rooms, sitting rooms and living rooms, including an entertainment space with an office, billiard room and a specialised room for cigar storage. Upstairs, there are four bedrooms and one executive suite that features an individual living room for the guests.
On the side of Aura facing the ocean a large swimming pool follows the undulating curves of the house seemingly blending in with the horizon, thus referring to Flaubert’s inspirational phrase. This part will be constructed out of clear glass with the ability to completely open the villa to the elements.
