Europa Nostra Award for Home for Cooperation

A local award ceremony will be organised to celebrate that Home for Cooperation won Europa Nostra's conservation award.

In the reasoning for the award, Europa Nostra wrote:

“The Jury felt that the Home for Cooperation was something to be really proud of. It constitutes, they felt, a substantial contribution to the revitalization of Nicosia’s United Nations Dead Zone as well as to the wider peacemaking procedure. Furthermore it represents a typical example of the 1950s architecture of Cyprus, which finds few supporters but which we are again starting to see as a brave and distinctive statement of the character of its period.”

The project has received €674 742 through the EEA Grants programme in Cyprus
