The Malta Independent on Sunday - - LIFESTYLE & CULTURE -

Spa­ces is proud to have pro­vided works for the ex­ten­sive restora­tion of San An­ton Palace.

The works helped the of­fi­cial res­i­dence of the Pres­i­dent of Malta to be brought to its orig­i­nal state in or­der to be en­joyed by the Mal­tese and Goz­i­tans alike.

“It is dif­fi­cult to fathom the amount of work and time re­quired for a restora­tion of this type. Wit­ness­ing some of the works be­ing car­ried out has helped us com­pre­hend how painstak­ing such restora­tion is,” said Mar­cel Mer­cieca, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Spa­ces. “We are pleased that we have com­mit­ted to such valu­able restora­tion works.”

Spa­ces, through its part­ner­ship with Seven Sedie Chairs and Scap­pini, pro­vided San An­ton Palace with loose and cus­tom fur­ni­ture to give rooms a re­freshed look and feel for in­creased value in util­ity. They also pro­vided wooden wall cladding, wooden sof­fits and wooden par­quet floor­ing, to safe­guard the his­toric value and au­then­tic­ity of the Palace.

The restora­tion be­gan in early 2015 and among the ar­eas that were re­stored were the rooms around the pri­vate gar­dens.

Fol­low­ing this, the sta­bles built by the Knights in the 16th cen­tury, which were be­ing used as garages and stor­age ar­eas were also trans­formed into rooms for dif­fer­ent uses such as lec­ture rooms, as well as for ex­hi­bi­tions, talks, sem­i­nars, cham­ber mu­sic pre­sen­ta­tions and sim­i­lar ac­tiv­i­ties.
