Upside Down House

Award-winning transformation of a Maltese townhouse

Design Brief

The work to the listed townhouse in Sliema in Malta combines a contemporary rooftop extension with the sensitive internal refurbishment and careful repair of the external facades.

The potential of two new roof terraces on the unused roof level led to the concept of upside down living, with kitchen, dining and living area all relocated to the open plan top floor.
