The Grand Master's Palace Regeneration Project in Valletta has triumphed at the 2023 Malta Architecture and Spatial Planning (MASP) awards, winning the prestigious Public Vote award and receiving a special commendation for its extensive restoration efforts.

The MASP awards recognise outstanding contributions to architecture and the built environment by architects, interior designers and other professionals. The jury praised the project and stated: "The enhancement of its valorisation, through a meticulous conservation, restoration and rehabilitation agenda, deserved this commendation."

Helga Ellul, chairperson of the MASP awards jury, presented Heritage Malta with an official brass plaque to commemorate this achievement. The plaque will be affixed at the Grand Master's Palace.

Heritage Malta's CEO, Noel Zammit, expressed his gratitude: "We are particularly honoured to have won this award. It proves that the Agency's Part of Us ethos beats in the public's heart. The Agency exists to ensure that our common heritage is restored, preserved and rendered accessible, and we regard this award as a vote of confidence by the public in our work, which fuels us to do even more."

Heritage Malta is currently actively working on other significant projects, including Villa Guardamangia, the Malta Maritime Museum, Villa Portelli and the Bighi Ex-Royal Naval Hospital Conservation Centre.
