Villa Castro in Naxxar has been shortlisted in this year's World Architecture Festival Awards, the largest architectural award ceremony in the world. The Palazzo is a collaboration between Architecture Project and Jens Bruenslow, and has been nominated for the New & Old - Completed Buildings category.
As the name implies, the villa combines classic Maltese Palazzo characteristics with a generous helping of modern architecture, and the result is absolutely gorgeous. The 700 square metre, 9-bedroomed Palazzo comes with under-floor heating, library and games room (to name but a few features). Villa Castro went up for sale last September, and it can be yours for a cool €2.7 million. Definitely #HouseGoals material right here.
Villa Castro is up against 16 other architectural projects from around the world in the World Architecture Festival Awards' New & Old category, and here's what the competition looks like.
