Cugo Gran Macina Grand Harbour – Luxury Boutique Accommodation

Macina is a testament of  taste, quality and luxury, reflecting the lifestyle of the guests that will be residing in the ultra-luxury suites. With amazing and intriguing communal spaces, large high vaulted ceilings, ample natural light and unobstructed marina views, a minimal design was enough to create a luxury environment. Designing a modern contemporary hotel space in the unique Macina building called for a strong palette  of raw natural materials and a great amount of respect for the building. We used laquered raw steel, limed oak and carrara marble, slate, lava stone, Maltese hard stone and custom tinted glass & mirror. Contemporary materials that sit elegantly within the walls of Macina reflecting light and colours within the building. Daaa haus team designed custom furniture for every space in the building that were then crafted by local craftsmen & carpenters. For other pieces we worked with reputable European designers to source unique lighting and finishing touches for each room. Tom Dixon, Flos & Louis Paulson lights sit with hand tufted wool rugs, Scandinavian furniture and bespoke Italian sofas and beds. The rooms are luxurious in size and appearance. Large vaulted spaces with arches, mezzanines float above huge custom bathrooms and historical industrial features from Macina’s former life as a 14th Century ship repair building are on view everywhere. The Macina building and its location are one of the most beautiful on the Maltese Islands. The history, the Grand Harbour and the views of Valletta make this an incredibly special place.
