Specifications EARTHQUAKE RESISTANT DESIGN Expand The building is designed to adhere to the latest EuroCodes on Concrete and Earthquake design, providing maximum protection to residents, whilst also utilising the exposed concrete as an aesthetic feature to give a modern, cutting edge feel to the development UNDERFLOOR HEATING Expand Each apartment in the development has underfloor heating installed for added comfort in winter months, operated by energy efficient heat pumps, individually controlled by each owner. AIRCONDITIONING AND VENTILATION Expand Highest efficiency class independent air-conditioning units supported by a central VRV system with Hydro box will be provided in each apartment for effective cooling and ventilation. In living rooms and bedrooms these will be ducted so they can seamlessly be incorporated (hidden) in the ceilings for aesthetics and practicality. Apartments are designed to allow free flow of air east to west for natural cooling and ventilation. THERMAL INSULATION Expand Hara Elite is one of the first residential development projects in Cyprus to achieve a Class A Energy certificate, meaning its specifications meet the stringent standards set by the EU regarding passive energy consumption. This is achieved with premium quality double glazed windows with Ug = 1.0W/m2K, (PLANIBEL ENERGY N) and aluminium frames of U<2.0 W/M2K. All floors, walls and external frame elements of the building will be insulated with XPS material. This will result in lower bills and increased comfort for potential residents. SMART HOME CONTROLS Expand Key functions in the apartments, such as lighting, blinds and appliances etc can be managed via a personalised application on your smart-phone and tablet. The system is simple to use and expandable; allowing for almost infinite functions to be monitored and controlled at your fingertips. ARCHITECTURAL LIGHTING, FEATURES AND ORIENTATION Expand Other than the essential lighting in apartments and common areas, our designers have incorporated clever architectural mood lighting to further enhance the building’s striking design and therefore maximise the feeling of comfort and luxury within the development. The building is designed as a chameleon with an ever changing facade and character, based on a combination of blinds, louvers and lighting. It is also oriented in a South-Easterly manner, to maximise the view towards the mesmerising blue of the Mediterranean Sea and enchanting Cypriot sunrises. HIGH END ALUMINIUM SECTIONS Expand In order to achieve highest energy efficiency and premium feel, we are installing the leading thermal aluminium sections, with reliable and robust mechanisms in combinations with the highest grade ‘planibel’ glass thereafter offering the best passive thermal performance and added security. ENERGY PERFORMANCE Expand In addition to all the above technologies for energy performance, in order to achieve the A+ Energy Classification, the building will be fitted with PhotoVoltaic panels on the roof to assist with common area energy needs. What is more, all lighting will be LED for lower energy consumption and all facade systems will be treated for maximum performance against energy losses. 1st energy certificate approved in Cyprus with an energy efficiency ratio of 0.31 Class A. PREMIUM CUSTOM MADE KITCHENS AND FURNITURE Expand Presenting our clients with high end finishing and cladding options, custom made kitchens and premium quality inbuilt furniture are included in our offering. LUXURY FLOORING AND FITTINGS Expand Nothing says luxury like premium floors and fittings. In recognition of this, we are providing Class A+ high gloss, engineered ceramic tiles in a marble finish. This will provide all of the beauty and luxury of marble, but without any of the drawbacks; making it a very practical option. This will be available in a variety of design choices. DESIGNED, EXCLUSIVITY AND SECURITY Expand The architectural design for the project is anthropocentric and revolves around your needs; practical open plan living areas and kitchens, optimal balcony orientation and spacious bedrooms. Master bedrooms feature en-suite bathrooms and walk-in wardrobes, further enhancing the feeling of comfort and convenience throughout your home. Additionally, access to the property is limited via security gates and electronic access control. Furthermore, the entrance is monitored through a lobby reminiscent- reflecting the feel of a five star hotel as opposed to a residential development. Our clients are unique and we want them to feel that way. Moreover, we are all protective of our home. For this reason, access is limited to the development even at the external fence. Access fob keys will be issued to owners, as well as security codes that will operate the lobby and fence doors. Apartments will be fitted with safety doors at the entrance as well as robust aluminium sections throughout. CE-Listed security, safety and fire protection, with remote access provides the perfect system with a secure backbone. Stay informed with instant notifications and alerts delivered to your smart phone device. PLUMBING INSTALLATIONS Expand Water is the key to life. As such, we are taking extra measures to provide water to each apartment using the latest pipe, pressure system and storage technology, so the water you use is clean and is perfectly pressurised. We are also installing selective aluminum solar heating panels, to cover your hot-water usage at zero cost (the heat pump will top-up as necessary in the few days where solar irradiation is low). AMPLE PARKING Expand Realising that many modern families now own more than one vehicle or that sometimes you may have guests, we are providing two covered and secure parking spaces per residence, as well as additional parking for guests and disabled permit holders for added convenience. ON TOP OF THE WORLD Expand Penthouse owners want to feel exceptional and deserve the highest standards. Because of this, we have provided unique features exclusive to the two penthouses. Beyond the extensive external areas, Penthouse owners can also relax in their private semi-covered Jacuzzi tub and also access their apartment directly via the elevator by use of custom-made keys. RESORT STANDARDS, HOME FEEL Expand Even though this is a residential development concentrating on comfort, we understand the need for amenities and fun. The development encompasses a gym, children’s playroom and a lap pool at basement level, so you can enjoy all the activities a hotel has to offer, in the comfort of your own home. ROOM FOR LIVING Expand All apartments have their own studios in the basement which may be used as private maids rooms so that service personnel can have their own living area and the resident family may enjoy private time in the main apartments. The studios alternatively may be used as storage, wine cellars and/or utility rooms with washer/dryers. The Penthouse apartments have an additional storage room in the basement.
