In Japanese aesthetics, Wabi-sabi is a world view centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. Imperfection is beautiful… Wabi-sabi aesthetics include: asymmetry, roughness, simplicity, austerity, modesty, intimacy, and appreciation of the ingenuous integrity of natural objects and processes. Wabi-sabi can find new applications in contemporary architecture and interior design, making us appreciate the beauty of handmade objects through the use of natural materials.
Did you Know that colors affect our psychology and emotions?
Are we looking for a peaceful and calming environment?
We might choose cool colors such as green and/or blue, as they are considered restful. There is actually scientific logic applied to this – because the eye focuses the color green directly on the retina, it is said to be less strainful on our eye muscles. Blue is also a typically calming and serene color, said to decrease respiration and lower blood pressure. The bedroom is a great place to use these two colors as they could help us relax and sleep well….
At Kuutio we focus on the function!
Five of the top 10 requested features for new homes deal with functionality and storage: Kitchens, walk-in closets, linen closets, walk-in pantries and laundry rooms. It is extremely important to remember that rooms that are functional don’t have to be huge. If you have a giant kitchen but nowhere to store your foodstuff the room won’t be as useful….
When we plan these functional areas, we always focus on storage and shelving.
Together we build your dream house

At Kuutio, we not only give emphasis on design, functionality and finishes but also protect our residences from serious dangers….such as water infiltration. Waterproofing your Kuutio home using the best modern materials combined with the knowledge and experience of our experts is one of our top priorities. Water infiltration does not only destroy your home but also causes mold and damp which can be dangerous for your health. With us, you have nothing to worry about. With us, you are safe, because we care!
With us you are always safe.
Our buildings are designed to comply fully with all the strict anti-seismic regulations that the Cyprus government requires, as Cyprus is in a seismically active region of the world. Our properties are built using a rigid, reinforced concrete skeleton with a brick infill, designed to keep both yourselves and your house safe in the event of a serious earthquake. Other anti-seismic construction methods are gradually appearing, which of course are currently being carefully studied by our experts.
The thermal and acoustic insulation of our residences enhances both comfort and quality of living.
Energy saving is also a great plus, as a well-designed thermal insulation is our top priority. All the external walls of our houses include superb insulation properties, balancing a comfortable warm interior in winter and a cool interior in summer, ideal for Cyprus’ weather conditions.
The windows and balcony doors are made of thermally insulated aluminum with low-emissivity double glazed glass to economize heating energy, combining high levels of thermal and acoustic insulation, exceptional performance against extreme weather conditions as well as the ability to cater for large openings
