The E-Pantar building project has been a very exciting project for us. Nothing beats shaping a building from scratch, with all the possibilities to create something so beautiful. Layout flexibility was one of our top priorities when designing this building, hence the use of raised flooring in most operational areas. Once the layout was finalised, it was time to embellish the space, choosing a mix of beautiful natural stone such as Carrara marble and travertine as well as ceramic for the interior and white and black precast terrazzo panels for the façade….to form a beautiful whole.
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.

The judges felt that this new building has successfully achieved its scope within the brief, while at the same time respecting the context of the fortifications.
