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 of the guest house, Calacatta Marble was used for flooring as well as in a striking bar top.
