Halmann Vella Ltd. | Portfolio


Hal Mann Vella has worked on a wide range of projects ranging from large commercial projects to smaller residential projects. Our strength lies in the ability to customize our product according to the customer’s specifications and requirements. Have a look at some of our past and more recent projects.

The use of patterned tiles in this space is a perfect example of finding a balance between the traditional and the contemporary for a totally classic look. Whilst the pattern leans more towards the traditional, the neutral colours give it a more contemporary look. It is a look that is vibrant and bold yet refined.

Patterned tiles are the common theme, visually connecting all the rooms in this corporate office designed by A.Collective.  These tiles add warmth and give a homey feel which is not the norm within a corporate setting. Then again, with a staff kitchen that looks more like a trendy cafeteria, this office space is clearly a cut above the rest.

Halmann Vella was one of the main suppliers in the renovation of The Qawra Palace Hotel. Elegant and stylish large format ceramic tiles in Crema Marfil matte finish were utilised in the main areas and the lobby. An Emparador Dark marble staircase adds drama to the space.

The outdoor area of Villa Mdina sees a predominant use of Maltese Hardstone which forms the backbone of this space. This stone takes cue from the past and the traditional, and is easily adaptable to a more modern, elegant and luxurious style. The neutral palette looks lovely against the surrounding greenery of the garden. Apart from the aesthetic value, Maltese hardstone was selected due to the fact that it’s a very durable material, and therefore ideal for high-traffic areas such as this entertaining space. The bar was designed in Cosmic Black Granite which elegantly stands out against the neutral palette …

Halmann Vella was the main surfaces supplier for the prestigious Life Sciences Park, which spans an area of 11,000 square metres. The park provides world class facilities including lecture theatres, offices, laboratories and meeting rooms and is a centre for research, exploration and creativity. The project consisted of two aspects: a ventilated façade using terrazzo panels, with the largest panels being 1000mm by 600mm (the largest terrazzo cladding ever produced by Halmann Vella) landscaping using terrazzo paving with maximum dimensions of 900mm by 600mm. The installation of a ventilated façade has a number of environmental benefits, which were a priority …

It’s been a great honour for us to be a part of the renovation of Gozo’s majestic Cittadella in collaboration with Martin Xuereb & Associates. This project emphasizes the importance of honoring historical heritage through exceptional design and use of local resources. The use of Maltese Hardstone was a natural choice for this historical gem, providing for a defining feature for the project which blends in perfectly with the local landscape.

The large open-plan kitchen and dining room lies at the entrance of the house. Apart from its functional role, this area also serves an aesthetic role as it sets the tone for the rest of the house. The room has 2 areas: The kitchen with a big utilitarian island, where one can have a quick meal and the dining area where one can enjoy eating in the cosy ambiance of the fireplace. The area is open, spacious and sleek, with contrasting colour accents in the kitchen accessories. The elegant brown Quartzite kitchen top enhances the contemporary feel of the room, …

This residence is an example of a modern and elegant space, with touches of colour and textures to add warmth and charm. A Silver Wave Marble fireplace acts as the focal point of the dreamy and luxurious living room, which leads to a spacious kitchen with a beautiful Cappuccino Marble backsplash and kitchen top. The Kyknos White Marble staircase complements the modernity of the space, with a monochromatic and cool palette.

Patterned tiles are usually associated with traditional design. However, in this residential project which blends traditional and contemporary, the use of patterned tiles, adds a clean, crisp and modern feel to the common areas of this townhouse. Using light hues of blues and green, the patterned tiles further connect the interior of the house, with the external area, transforming an otherwise plain space into a colourful welcome to the rest of this beautiful home.

Different hues of marble cut in various shapes make for a visually stunning office and corridor flooring at the Malta Gaming Authority’s office. The floor design in the corridor, compliments the wall panels and artwork, making an otherwise long and narrow corridor, visually appealing. The materials used for the flooring are Cream Karaman and Kyknos White Marble combined with Wenge Limestone.

The architects’ brief consisted of transforming an old, typical Valletta townhouse, previously used for residential purposes into a luxury guesthouse. The idea was to keep the traditional feel of the house whilst adding a contemporary feel. The original flooring of the house, which was made of traditional patterned tiles, was considerably damaged and so it was decided to replace all the flooring. Halmann Vella were called in, to produce a custom made pattern, which complements not only the traditional aspect of the house but also its branding. To further enhance the luxury feel of the guest house, in other areas …

The Valletta City Gate project aims to transform the main entrance to Malta’s capital by creating a coherent scheme for an area that has suffered from controversial and confused urban development.

The project includes the renovation of the City Gate – a symbolic site, the conversion of a portion of the historic dry moats that flank the city, the design of a new Parliament building, and the restoration of the Opera …
