There’s something very elegant and opulent about marble. It is no surprise that it was selected as the main focal point at Hamett’s Macina Restaurant, a restaurant housed in a historical building, manned by 19 time-award winning restaurateur Chris Hammett. The marble was combined with rich blues for a modern, lounge style final result. During this project, Halmann Vella installed a 3 metre marble bar top in Calacatta Fusion as well as a number of dining tables in Calacatta Fusion and Grey Stone.
