Urban Design Award

MASP winner 2019

The winner in this category was the Architectural firm Studjurban for a residential property in Mosta. The development is a mixed-used combination of residential units and a child-care facility at ground floor level. The design exploits the prominent corner location and makes a valiant effort to provide an alternative typology for medium-rise housing projects. Worthy of mention is the use of travertine cladding for the external façade contrasting with white plastered walls at ground floor level. The project was supported by extensive conceptual design studies and provides an innovative alternative model for medium-rise housing development.
