Nice Day Developments was founded in 1995 by Dakis Ioannou and Christos Ioannou with the vision of providing quality buildings of outstanding architecture that cater to an ever-changing contemporary way of living.
Nice Day, from its inception, realized that its role can be more rewarding if it becomes part of this dialogue, if its proposals moved beyond the usual role of a developer providing living and working space and engage with the complexities of making architecture today. In this spirit, it systematically encourages both local and foreign architects, to incorporate all these in the design process. Sometimes through direct commissions at other times through invited competitions, Nice Day provides architects with the opportunity to realize their ideas and thus make a positive contribution to the urban fabric and add their voice to a critical dialogue about the future of architecture.
Nice Day Developments has completed more than 50 projects including “Prince”, awarded the Cyprus State Architectural Award for Residential Buildings in 1998, “Nice Day Tower”, nominated to represent Cyprus in The European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture, Mies van Der Rohe Award. True to its spirit of encouraging projects of exceptional architecture, Nice Day has completed White Walls, designed by Jean Nouvel. White Walls has been named Best Tall Building of Europe for 2016 by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH).
All of the above come as a recognition of the high standards that Nice Day has set for itself and become a driving force for our future goals. It is our belief, that this critical stance is both a sustainable model and a way to come to terms with the historical, social, political, environmental and economic forces that shape our man-made environment. Through its projects, Nice Day proposes an architecture that is sustainable, that provides the occupants with a sense of place and contributes positively to urban development and a high quality of life while at the same time provides a forum to further explore the role of architecture in contemporary society.
