Architecture in Malta

We’ve selected what we feel are the key examples of Maltese Architecture. e-architect try to include Maltese buildings that are either of top quality or interesting, or ideally both. We cover completed buildings, new building designs, architectural exhibitions and architecture competitions across Malta. The focus is on contemporary Maltese buildings but information on traditional buildings in Malta is also welcome.

We have 1 page of Maltese Architecture selections with links to many project pages.

TreeHouse represents the timeless expression of Maltese contemporary residential values. By challenging the traditional concept of the dwelling and reinterpreting the role of local techniques and materials, the design concept explores sustainable adaptive reuse in a dynamic context. The fluidity of space is expressed horizontally in the open plan layout and vertically via the stairwells that flow through and fold in on the various levels, creating a vibrant backdrop to the lifestyle of the residents.

Aragon House Business Centre – 25 Feb 2013

Pool Pavilion Malta
The requirements of the owners of this traditional rural Maltese property in the North of the island included the reorganisation of the existing pool-side facilities. This was intended not solely to encourage their use by the family on a more regular basis, but also to enhance their role at times when the gardens are used for entertaining during the long dry seasons of clement weather that are characteristic of the island.

Corporate Village Malta
This project is located within a brownfield site that lies along this edge, within what has been an industrial zone since the 1960s. In the last decade, new office developments have taken shape in this zone, thus changing the dynamics of the area and bringing a drastic increase in its working population. This 36,000 sqm site lies at the heart of this district, offering the opportunity for causing a project that can catalyse the regeneration of a whole locality.

St. Barbara’s Bastion
The brief for this Maltese Building centered on three major elements. The first was the creation of an office space in an old building which would include all the qualities necessary for a contemporary working space; light, clarity, comfort and ease of access. The second was the creation of a high end, luxury residential space which would be located on the uppermost level of the building. The third issue was that of creating separate entrances to accommodate for the two functions of the building; one for the residential space and one for the office space.
