Burgi , Madliena, Malta
From the Architects:
The Burgi Project consists of two villas intended to be used as family homes in the heart of Madliena. The main form of the project was created as a reflection of the gradual slope it rests upon and as such results in dramatic angles that define both of its elevations. Furthermore, apertures also reflect such geometry and allow for an interesting play of light and shadow in interior spaces. As the houses are located on the highest point of a hill, main viewports are directed towards panoramic views of both landscapes and the sea. The villas are designed to blend in with their environment through their overall form but are intended to also create clear cut contrasts through the combination of striking geometry and pure, untarnished finishes.
