Sixty6 Tower by Pininfarina was designed in image and likeness of Cyprus. The building is a 17-floors residential tower inspired by the layering of the sandstone cliffs, typical of Cyprus coasts, and by the history of the island, rich and unique thanks to the stratification of different cultures. The elliptical shape of the building allows the sea view from all the apartments enhanced by the external glass walls making the sky and the sea entering into the apartments. The spacious balconies, moreover, beyond permitting to enjoy the extraordinary Cyprus climate, represent both an aesthetic element giving personality to the project and a functional one as they control the solar radiation.

The uniqueness of the exteriors is matched by the refinement of the interiors. The building hosts three typical floors with apartment of different dimensions and a luxurious penthouse enriched by gardens. The experience is completed by the possibility to enjoy a gym and a spa with an external swimming pool. The goal of the Pininfarina architects was to conceive a new way to experience and enjoy the sea life through architecture and new technologies. Nikhi Group plans to complete the development by 2021, which will surge in Limassol and will occupy a gross floor area of 12,247 square meters. The architectural model of the project has been presented by Pininfarina at the MIPIM international property event hosted in Cannes.
