Founded in 2013, (X,Y,Z) is an architecture and design studio led by 3 partners: Daniel Camilleri, Janice Fiorentino & Daniel Micallef.
(X,Y,Z) is a multi-disciplinary team, offering a wide range of services thanks to the different areas of specializations of the team members. Together we offer the services required for a holistic design, tailor made for each client; starting from the overall architecture and spatial design, dealing with planning applications, followed by detailed structural drawings, and topped off with cutting-edge design for interiors including lighting design, and custom designed items. Using this approach, the clients visualize clearly the interiors of their spaces prior to the initial stages of construction or renovation.
(X,Y,Z) is working on a wide range of residential, office & commercial projects, some of which have already been featured in architectural & design magazines.
Partner & Architect
Outgoing and multi-tasking, Daniel manages to keep his cool as he handles the planning related work and applications within the office. Whilst listening to electronic music hidden behind the mountain paper stacks on his desk, he systematically chops the tasks off the long daily list and coordinates most of the team in the design and planning aspects. Daniel is up to the minute with local and international current affairs. He loves travelling to exotic destinations exploring different cultures, but if the slot is too short for that, he is reading newspapers at the beach, supporting AC Milan, fishing or grilling away for family and friends.
Partner, Architect & Structural Engineer
Immaculately organized and quick in action, he is constantly operating at the speed of light. Daniel, director and structural engineer, is the mastermind of all that relates to structure and construction, concrete and steel. Proactive, logical and practical, Daniel leads the structural team to creatively come up with solutions for the design team! When not at the office, you will find Daniel overhauling a vintage car, or otherwise you just won’t - he will be at one with nature, trekking in some remote location!
Partner & Architect
Colourful and bubbly, Janice takes care of the design and interiors within the office. Constantly up to date with the latest products, materials and design technology, she creates unique spaces by using traditional materials in a contemporary way. Janice coordinates the team to holistically design spaces to the minute of details, and creatively produce bespoke pieces. Although her desk resembles a scene from a car booth sale, she is constantly on the ball with tight deadlines and dealing closely with contractors and manufacturers to realize each piece to fit the design spaces at large. Relatively relaxed, Janice is always up for a good time, and is normally the person to come up with ideas for office events, always accompanied with some good wine and laughter.
