Sustainability

The building where Sir Paul Hotel is situated was built approximately in the 1820s. It used to be a ground floor structure only and was used as the stables and employee department of Lady Kryristalia’s home, which is situated at the top of the street near the hotel. After some years the first floor was build and used as the first townhall of Limassol until 1918. Then it was used as a part of the bank, a gentlemen club, where the high society of Limassol would meet and discuss political issues, and a part of the Metropole Hotel which was opposite the street and operated by Sir Paul Pavlides. In 1960 Sir Paul Pavlides left Cyprus and in the following years the building suffered damage due to a catastrophic rain which ruined its roof, therefore closing down the building. The building was left empty for 35 years until 2015, when the family decided to renovate and build the Sir Paul Hotel.

All original structures of the edifice were preserved and new structures were built where needed with the utmost respect to the history of the building. Materials like stone and wood were used as main elements in the renovation. The renovation of the building was done with respect to the history such as the restoration of the main staircase that leads to the first floor. A large atrium can be found in the center of the building surrounded by stone arches which were restored and stand at the full glory.

Apart from the renovation concerned with the history of the building, the family took into account sustainability and environmental issues. The automation system KNX, designed by Zenion, was put in place in the hotel to monitor lighting, HVAC systems, metering, security system, energy management, monitoring systems and remote control. With the help of KNX it is possible to face sustainability matters, such as energy consumption and machine faults.
