Teatru Manoel, Valletta
Restoration Award Winner 2021
This submission is evidence of the high-quality restoration that can be achieved on the basis of extensive research into the history of the building as well as its socio-political and architectural context. One of the key components of the project was the reconstruction of the façade in accordance with the original façade drawing within the eighteenth-century Vilhena Cabreo. The architects went further than mere reconstruction, but creatively suggested subtle changes to the facade to accommodate new elements which allow the façade to assume its historic prominence.
