Forni Stores

The Forni Stores form part of the historical buildings within the Cruise Passenger Terminal waterfront, located in Valletta’s Grand Harbour. This project highlighted two critical aspects of heritage conservation: the necessity for ongoing, interdisciplinary studies to fully understand the distinct phases of a building and their influence on construction techniques and historical structures; and the importance of careful recording and documenting prior and during interventions to support significant restoration efforts. The project underlined the evolution of restoration theories and standards and their application on local heritage.

The Glasshouse is part of a wider strategy to revive and safeguard Villa Bologna’s heritage.

By viewing heritage as a valuable asset and propagating the native Maltese flora, Villa Bologna’s gardens are maintained, promoting the idea of circularity and sustainable development.
