Spaces, a local company which not only sells furniture, but offers valuable advice and options on how to turn your living spaces into functional rooms for everyone, has proudly 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 garden. 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.
