Views of the sea and the horizon inspire the renovation of a private Maltese villa

The project involves the functional, aesthetic and energetic remodel of a single-family house and its exterior areas of relevance, positioned on the island of Malta in an isolated site far from urban centers.

The spectacular sea view has suggested completing the building with the inclusion of two horizontal planes parallel to the horizon line. One in the upper part with the addition of a cantilever roof and the second in the lower part with the construction of a plateau suspended on the surrounding landscape.
