Villa Remigio, Madliena

Situated in the rural hamlet of Madliena, Malta, Villa Remigio is an imposing country residence rich in Maltese vernacular architecture. Over the years it suffered from many insensitive interventions and neglect. Luckily, the present owners decided to convert it into their home, saving it from being demolished and redeveloped by speculators. Great passion was put into transforming it into a unified residence that preserved and enhanced traditional features in both the interior and exterior, harmoniously merging old with new elements to create a sense of continuity, calmness and tranquillity. Works included extensive structural alterations that made use of local materials and traditional craftsmanship. Insensitive accretions were removed and individual rooms were opened by stone arches relieved on columns. Other interventions included a new conservatory added to the kitchen, an infinity indoor/outdoor pool with surrounding decking and arcade, new stone vaulted ceilings, handcrafted helical stone stairs, bespoke patterned cement tiling, limestone paving, new timber apertures and handmade wrought iron railings.
