Antiroom II is a floating ring-deck in the Mediterranean Sea
Malta is without doubt a well-grounded, traditional tourist paradise, with endless shores and all the necessary services a holiday spot has to offer. Therefore, everything is more or less familiar, and it is quite a challenge to see something new and progressive, and to get involved in unprecedented experiences. Now, thanks to a bunch of students, the town of Valletta has a truly unique feature. A group of young architects, taking part in a creative workshop during the summer, built a floating structure for a unmatched relaxation experience.
Antiroom II was created at the EASA 2015 camp (EASA stands for Europe Architecture Students Assembly), with the tutoring of Elena Chiavi, Ahmed el Mad, and Matteo Goldoni. With a slightly romantic and poetic grounding, the young team came up with a circular, free-flowing ring, that was installed in the sea without any direct access.
The wooden structure, resembling a never-ending stoa and made homely with a line of voile curtains hanging all around, can be approached only by swimming or by a small boat. The structure is extremely light and instable, presenting a singular experience of freedom out in the water, far from the land. While the ring structure is definitely poetic, on a practical level it forms a natural inner pool, where visitors can experience the open sea from a safe point.
