Valentino Architects has designed La Serenissima in Attard, Malta.
This project is a retrofit interior for a contemporary residence located in the village of Attard in Malta.
Designers Valentino Architects converted a former studio space designed by 20th-century artist Frank Portelli – a central figure in Malta's post-war art scene – into a modern home for his granddaughter.
Defined by bold triangular windows and a strong north-south axial layout, the re-birthed home augments Portelli's original design, conserving his furniture, floor tiles and spatial rationale – while a new raised sun deck transforms the southernmost point of the home into a bright semi-open space for reading, resting and gathering.
