Top 10 Projects of 2020
Over the past year, Halmann Vella has worked on several projects. We wanted to take a step back and have a look at our top 10 projects of 2020. Explore them here!
Number 11 – Urban Boutique Hotel
Number 11 is the new urban boutique hotel in St. Julian’s. It’s where contemporary-style meets urban fashion, and where a vibrant club area meets a vivacious shopping and cosmopolitan circle. It’s where work and play come easy, connections are made and experiences remembered. We supplied and installed a combination of stairs and flooring in black and white Architectural Terrazzo, Gardenia Parquet looking ceramic tiles, outdoor Slate flooring and cladding in Travertine Silver and Slate. Finishes make for a contemporary vibe, while materials pay tribute to the Maltese heritage. See full project
Edward’s Lowell’s Boutiques
Edwards Lowell Concept Store – Portomaso Marina
For the renovation of this luxurious space, which merges lifestyle, art, design, books, watches and jewellery, we sourced and installed large 2m x 1m slabs of Ariostea. Ariostea flooring, ultramodern fixtures and bright natural light pouring in from the sizeable apertures play an impeccable framework for the carefully-curated pieces within. The essence of The Concept Store fuses contemporary design with timeless elegance, a playground for those who seek out impeccable taste and style, beautifully designed by DPMSeanArrigo.

Edwards Lowell – Patek Philippe & Cartier Boutique
A refined look suitable for a refined boutique. The Crema Marfil Marble along with the Emperador Dark Marble, brings a warm and sophisticated tone to the overarching look of the Patek Philippe & Cartier Boutique in Valletta. Design and Project Management by DPMSeanArrigo. See full project
Townhouse in Valletta
Marble takes centre stage in this 19th century Palazzo’s story. Located in Valletta on St. Ursula Street and badly damaged during the war, this building is now a beautiful private home. A large screen of Patagonia marble cut and installed in book-match, acts as a backdrop to the large marble dining table by Mangiarotti, shielding the food preparation and cooking space from view. Zebrino Marble covers the wall and the inner side of the door of the bathrooms. Customised bathroom sink in Bianco Sivec is carved from solid marble. The main staircase of this prestige townhouse has been clad in Tundra Grey marble, a smooth contrast to the exposed stoneworks. Architecture & Structural Engineering: AP Valletta Ltd. Design Team Lead: Rosanne Asciak. M&E Engineering: Scicluna & Associates Ltd. Photography: Luis Rodríguez López. See full project
Gracy’s Brasserie at the Civil Service Sports Club
For the stunning Gracy’s Brasserie at the Civil Service Sports Club in Valletta, we provided travertine flooring and top bars in natural stone to follow Sam Rowe’ Beddoe’s design, complementing the original dynamic arches and a unique colour palette. See full project
A well deserved new look for Eden Cinemas in St. Julian’s. Lead Designer Sean Cassar at The Design Hub entrusted us with providing brushed columns in Pietra Lavica, as well as the flooring and the stairs, giving the place a dynamic and modern look. We love the contrast between colours and materials! See full project
Baystreet Shopping Centre and Be.Hotel
A relaxing stay from the very beginning. That’s the feel Carlo Schembri wanted to give to the reception at Be.Hotel Malta. 68 square meters of parquet tiles in Gardenia Orchidea complement the wooden backdrop, creating a well-defined space in conjunction with the white soffit ceiling. 360 square meters of Arisostea 1.2×0.6m white tiles make for a soft, embracing atmosphere, and are also featured in corridors, lift lobbies and bathrooms for an all-rounded hotel experience.

Finishing a project up to the highest standards and on time is not the easiest task in the midst of a pandemic. But the Halmann Vella team worked around the clock to finish a total area of 200sqm of flooring for Baystreet Shopping Complex. Essential geometries for the external tiling in BSP Grey and Piombo, and a centrepiece on Level 2 made in Macchia Perta by Infinity Surfaces. Designed by Carlo Schembri. See full project
Deep Nature Spa at the Phoenicia
The calming aura of the Deep Nature Spa at the Phoenicia was brought about by utilising gold and brass accents across the spa and by mimicking the colours of the tranquil water in the green and blue glass mosaic tiles in the showering area. The calming whites, aesthetic blues and warm woods add to the definitive look of the spa. Designed by AP Valletta. See full project
Pink Terrazzo table tops, bartop and wall cladding were used for this traditional restaurant in Dingli, designed by Mizzi Studios. The chunky pink-terrazzo architrave of this restaurant, as well as tabletops were manufactured in our factory in Lija. See full details of this project.
