Saint George's Square
St. George's square or Palace square, was recently turned from a car park into an open space for the enjoyment of Maltese people, families and tourists who visit the islands.The project, was part of plans to make the Palace, the centre of the city, thus restoring its dignity. The general picture portrays the President's Palace as a showcase of Maltese identity, culture and history when the House of Representatives moves to the current opera house ruins. The project also links to the regeneration of Valletta, which the government is committed to continue. Modern creativity was intertwined with history, with the use of water, light and music, creating a fresh and live space which enables Wi-Fi use.
The design stages were complete by Carlo Shim. Apart from it’s modernistic design the goal of the lighting design was to allow the general public to rediscover the character of buildings that have been at the very forefront of Maltese heritage and culture for centuries.
