An introduction to Japanese Apartment

What is the story behind the Japanese Apartment, what was your inspiration to create it?

A few years back, we acquired this brilliant property in Gozo’s best location and thought: “what can we do with such well-located blank canvas?” It’s overlooking the island of Comino and the harbour where you have 24-hour activity with the boats and fishermen coming into the port.

We engaged one of the best architects based in Malta, Chris Briffa, to explore design concept ideas. This blank canvas evolved into this Japanese concept, creating a Japanese-themed apartment. In Malta (the main island), life is busy and stressful but Gozo is an island where people come to unwind and relax. So we wanted to create a space that is very relaxing and tranquil. The concept was perfectly aligned with the idea, considering the environment and the views, and Chris did a brilliant job.

 How would you describe the atmosphere and the interior design of the Japanese Apartment? 

It has a holistic feel as the entire apartment has been designed with a Japanese aesthetic.

To you personally, what is so special about the Japanese Apartment?   It’s one of a kind, in both Gozo and Malta. Everything is custom-made, perfectly fitting the apartment, including all of the wooden furnishings and joinery, All loose items are either from a high standard established brand or designer pieces and we have commissioned artworks throughout the apartment. There are also lots of plants and natural materials — it feels like a completely new experience.

Gozo is a very interesting island and home to one of the oldest temples in the Mediterranean, Ġgantija. On weekends in the summertime, there are religious celebrations at the churches and fireworks in the villages while small concerts and operas take place in the cooler months.

Gozo is home to many beaches, both sandy and pebbly, and the water is very clear. The closest beach is just 10 minutes’ walk from the apartment and the most popular is on Comino Island, which can be reached in 10 minutes by boat. You can also go walking in the countryside and the entire island can be explored by car in around an hour.
