APPROACH

Valentino Architects is a design-led architecture studio based in Valletta, Malta. We work collaboratively with consultants, contractors and material suppliers to design high-quality spaces and objects, with projects built as tailored solutions through a process of open dialogue. Our work is a study in form, proportion, detailing and texture, characterised by an economy of scale, colour and material. We have built a design approach that prioritises collaboration and is driven by social, environmental and urban impact.

SERVICES

We work across diverse scales and scope, with projects spanning residential, retail and commercial sectors. Our work ranges from new-build architecture to retrofit, refurbishment, interiors, furniture and product design. Our remit covers brief development, concept and design strategy, planning preparation and submission, through to on-site delivery.

PROCESS

We work closely with clients as projects evolve, holding regular meetings to ensure active involvement at every design stage. Following initial brief development, early ideas are visualised through sketching, with physical and digital modelling helping refine design concepts as projects mature. At delivery stage, we work collectively with clients and consultants to meet individual project goals. Whether designing furniture and interiors, domestic projects, or large-scale public-facing schemes, our underlining goal is to develop solutions that are functional and have visual longevity.

TEAM

Our team is non-hierarchical, working across tasks of all scale to deliver architecture that is user and context driven. Our work is characterised by the varied skills of the team’s individual designers, each aiming to create architecture that improves quality of life. As a studio, we have a growing interest in alternative urban development and sustainable solutions. We work to inform our design, ideas and concepts through writing, research and active industry participation.
