The creation of rental apartments in the heart of Bormla creates the opportunity to provide the visitors using accommodation a space where even though they are inside, they can feel connected to the grand harbour scenery that attracts people to come to the area. Just as in the main house, the back facade is made into a more permeable line that connects the internal spaces of the house with the greenery in the back yard, so too will these units open up onto the views of Dock 1 that are available. As an extension to this, the interiors although simple are made to allow certain touches of traditional hues and materials to inhabit the spaces with very basic geometrical patterns on the floor and timber furniture.  The background colours are as neutral as possible whilst certain colours are introduced to create identity before arriving at main apertures facing the main views at the back end of the property.
