Casa Bottega
by Chris Briffa Architects

Aldo Amoretti

Casa Bottega doubles as both an architectural practice and home to architect Chris Briffa.

Briffa purchased the seventeenth-century home through court auction, when it was in a dilapidated, structurally unsafe and abandoned condition. The house is located at the lower end of the Valletta peninsula in Malta.

Over five years, the structure has been transformed into Briffa's own home and studio, retaining its distinct identity within the confines of an urban, historic neighbourhood.


This project has been longlisted in the residential rebirth project category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
