Public Open Spaces Award Winner 2021


Roof garden and green wall at the Valleta Design Cluster – Restoration Directorate and Tetsuo Kondo Architects

Architectural Firm

Restoration Directorate

A garden was built on the roof of the Valletta Design Cluster, a new green lung for the city, usable by everyone.  It is a flagship example of what can be achieved with vision and resilience, and is now a new public green space in Valletta.  The roof garden has the effect of reducing the heat-island effect, it has ecological value, water regulation and environmental mitigation.  Additionally, the soft landscaping was extensively researched to provide a sensory experience to the visitor, reflecting the typical colours, scents and characteristics of the Mediterranean scrub.
