Villa Saudade, a modernist residence in Attard, Malta, is a unique example of how a family of 3 can live in comfort and style within a limited site. Designed by Chris Briffa Architects in 2020, this villa was built around a 100-year-old cypress tree and includes a series of sinuous volumes, a concrete-timber base, and apertures placed on all six sides of the building. By inverting the traditional layout with the sleeping areas located on the lower levels and living areas on the upper levels, the architects provided the family with a cozy and environmentally-friendly home.
Casa Bottega is a penthouse apartment located in Valletta, Malta, designed by Chris Briffa Architects in 2019.
The building functions as both a architectural practise and domicile, with the lower levels embracing the existing structure and features, and the penthouse being a contemporary counterpart. The penthouse sits on two pre-cast concrete beams, and provides expansive, liberating views of both harbours beyond. The living room doors pack up in a steel-unit, blurring the line between interior and exterior.
