Name: Helena’s Villa

Designer: Grech & Vinci Architecture & Design

Location: Safi, Malta

Year: 2012

Helena’s Villa is a minimalist house located in Safi, Malta, designed by Grech & Vinci Architecture & Design. A site bounded by other dwellings necessitated a villa concept with privacy in mind. Modernist forms interpret the sense of protection given by a castle; monumental from the outside, but opening up into internal courtyards and light-filled living spaces.

Inside, the feel is light, luxurious and contemporary, utilising materials such as polished and raw concrete, perforated steel, white walls and warm plywood. Bold architectural details merge with interior design and windows strategically placed for privacy afford a sleek light box feel, playing with planes, sharp lines and shadows. In contrast, a welcoming living area, integrated fireplace and generously proportioned ensuite bathrooms provide all the comforts of a home.
