This paper classifies the Cypriot Art Déco and addresses it, for the first time, as the dominating modernist variant of the 1930s-1940s in Cyprus. We argue that, out of several Art Déco trends, the Mendelsohnian streamline moderne is by far the prevalent and is characterized by a common, rounded architectural morphology. Main sources of this ”Mediterranean Art Déco”, more or less immediate, are primarily France, England, Athens, and a now partially anonymous local architectural elite.
