Rebecca Zammit’s house earned an honourable mention at the Premju Galizia awards issued by the Kamra tal-Periti last June. Less than five months later,  the architect and interior designer won the Interior Architecture Residential Project issued by the Malta Architect Awards.

The jury, as quoted from the Architect Awards website, “was particularly impressed with the successful articulation and juxtaposition of different materials as well as the treatment of suspended soffits and the elegant handling of natural light in the interior.”
Rebecca Zammit, who runs Her. Architecture, (very humbly) agreed to walk us through how she transformed her place. The photos in this article were taken by Tonio Lombardi.
