Reinterpreting Communal Housing

Żebbiegħ, Malta
2017 - 2020

The design of these residences exploits its commanding position through the stepped play of its terraces, while retaining the proportions, solid-to-void ratio and materiality of masonry that are present within the surrounding context, while introducing subtle design elements in the facade that allow it to remain contemporary and distinct. Its common areas are finished using subtle tones of colour, enabled through a simple yet effective materiality and attention to detail.
