“Il-Barri Restaurant: A Translucent DuPont™ Corian® Masterpiece

Galea & Galea Architects bring innovation to life with the renovation of Il-Barri Restaurant in the traditional village of Mgarr. A beautiful and creative application of translucent DuPont™ Corian® unfolds across the bar counter, wall-cladding, and ceiling, creating a captivating and modern ambiance.


Project Highlights:

  1. The Bar Counter:
    • Materials Fusion: The bar counter is a fusion of materials, featuring a wood base, translucent and engraved DuPont™ Corian® Glacier-Ice for the facade, and a glass surface surrounded by DuPont™ Corian® Deep Nocturne.
    • Creative Engravings: Engravings on the translucent Corian® facade add a unique touch, enhancing the visual appeal and allowing for intriguing light play.
  2. Wall-Cladding:
    • Translucent Elegance: The 12mm translucent DuPont™ Corian® wall-cladding is a centerpiece, offering elegance and depth to the interior. Engravings on both sides create diverse light perspectives, adding to the overall ambiance.
  3. Custom Ceiling Panels:
    • Innovative Design: The ceiling panels showcase innovation with the use of wood and thermoformed translucent DuPont™ Corian® strips. This design choice not only adds visual interest but also contributes to the cohesive and modern atmosphere.
  4. Galea & Galea Architects’ Vision:
    • Transformational Design: The project reflects the transformative vision of Galea & Galea Architects, turning Il-Barri Restaurant into a modern and visually stunning space that embraces the charm of its traditional setting.

This project exemplifies the versatility and aesthetic possibilities offered by DuPont™ Corian®. The collaboration between Galea & Galea Architects and Shaker results in a masterpiece that seamlessly blends tradition with contemporary design. #IlBarriRestaurant #DuPontCorian #GaleaAndGaleaArchitects”
