Local design practice Valentino Architects transforms a cluster of heritage-listed buildings into new structures including the Mill House in the village of Attard in Malta. The studio adds bedrooms to the first floor and details that surround the central courtyard. It has a modern walkway that overlooks the courtyard linking together the existing structures. Additional details include the entrance hall that is framed by stoned arches that lead into the home.
The studio speaks about its latest project, “Introducing new cohesion between the buildings to create a family home, the designs positions an outdoor courtyard as a connecting agent, allowing the disparate spaces to each communicate with the sun-soaked hearth of the home. A glazed walkway curates this connection, functioning as a binding passage between the three volumes.”
