Sculptural White Cube Suspended Over a Narrow Garden in Malta

The original looking Hanging Home in Malta was envisioned by Chris Briffa Architects and is located in Naxxar, Malta. The main challenge for the architects was to develop a functional and comfortable residence on a relatively small lot of 250 square meters. Moreover, the zoning regulations in the area state that only 40% of the land can be constructed. The winning idea was cantilevering half of the house over the pool area in order to gain space.

 

The resulting Hanging Home accommodates an impressive open plan living and dining area, two large en-suite bedrooms, a home-office, a study, a three-car garage, a swimming pool and a large courtyard. From the street, the white mass of the cube is gently contrasted by louvered doors, inspired by Maltese tradition. The opposite facade is completely different, showcasing mainly glass and opening up the living space. A concrete hanging slab was used to “propel” the social area towards the swimming pool and garden.

A good building should make you want to look at it. Even if not always liked by passers-by, it should always make them feel something. Manchester Metropolitan’s University’s business school is a building that effortlessly fits this criteria. Indeed for many, the building by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios is their first taste of the architecture of Manchester as they travel along the arterial road, Mancunian Way. With its distinct ski-slope roof, and glittering mirrored appearance, it provides a flash of silver, and a dazzling break from the dull greys of the motorway, greeting motorists in a slightly space-age way as they enter the city

Energy during the construction process was saved by using FSC-certified glulam timber instead of steel to create the building’s distinctive wavy roof, while the store’s external walls use hemclad, a highly innovative insulator made from hemp, which, like all plants, absorbs CO2 from the atmosphere as it grows. An 80,000 litre water tank below ground provides water for the store’s toilets and waters the site’s green wall’, which provides natural insulation, acts as an all-natural pollution filter near the car park, and helps to encourage biodiversity. The result is a building that uses a fraction of the energy of structures of a similar size, and is still very popular with local shoppers.
