Sayonara Guesthouse

The design plans that @valentinoarchitects created for the renovation of Sayonara Guesthouse in St Julians involved an extension to a building that sits on a slope. Lined with historic stately structures to one side and smaller modern apartment blocks to the other, the idea was to tie together old and new surroundings with a newly created alleyway slicing through the building – rendered in gold and shadow to offer variation as users move from traditional to contemporary spaces.
