LAST CALL FOR THE X DIN L-ART ĦELWA

ARCHITECTURAL HERITAGE AWARD SCHEME 2014

 

The X Din l-Art Ħelwa Architectural Heritage Award Scheme for 2014 is open for entries.  The Award Scheme is an initiative set up by the NGO to encourage architectural excellence in a Maltese context, the rehabilitation and reuse of old buildings, and the recognition of the dedicated work of those active in the field of restoration.   The Scheme is carried out with the support of the Kamra tal-Periti.

Eligible projects include the restoration or conservation of buildings, the adaptation of buildings to new uses, building additions or alterations, or new building projects in conservation areas. The projects can relate either to a single building, a complex of buildings, or to a historic urban environment or townscape. The project will be judged on the quality of the work executed, its historic, cultural, educational and social relevance, the preliminary research conducted and the aesthetic and visual merit. The project may be on a scale ranging from small to large, and should display a standard of work which would be outstanding in a Maltese context.

Simone Mizzi, Executive President of Din l-Art Ħelwa said ‘With the glut of empty buildings on the market, mostly of poor quality and design,   the restoration and reuse of existing buildings, especially those of architectural value and age must be promoted and examples of excellence rewarded.  This is the aim of the Din l-Art Ħelwa Award Scheme each year’.

Submissions for the X Din l-Art Ħelwa Architectural Heritage Award Scheme should be for projects completed in the last year up to the 31st August, 2014, and submissions must be received at Din l-Art Ħelwa, 133 Melita Street, Valletta by the 10 October, 2014.  More information about the Award Application and Registration forms are available from the Kamra tal-Periti, or from the Din l-Art Helwa office.   For further information please call 21 220358/21 225952.
