Ray DeMicoli graduated in 1975 from the University of Malta with a first class Honours degree in Architecture and Civil Engineering. He joined Malta Consult in 1976 and soon after took an architectural post with DP International in Paris. In these formative years he was exposed to numerous international projects where he collaborated with offices like Sir Leslie Martin, Albini Helg, HPP Germany, and Piano Rogers in Beaubourg.
On returning to Malta in 1979 he joined the experienced architectural practice of Carmelo Falzon. In 1985 he established his own practice, DeMicoli & Associates. Architectural and interior design projects that have received acclaim are the Mosta Technopark; his own house which was nominated for the Mies Van de Rohe European Architectural Award; the offices at the Mall, Floriana; the Joinwell Showroom; Portomaso; and Palm City in Libya.
The Portomaso and Palm City architectural and engineering projects epitomize Ray's passions: architecture, history, and the sea. "I love the Mediterranean... this infinite welding of cultures; not to mention the weather and the cuisine."
Current projects include the new Wurth Showroom; the Water Apartments at Portomaso; a new office building in Mriehel, Malta; and Palm Waterfront, Libya.
The Mediterranean ingenuity coupled with the use of advanced technological software is constantly taking the architectural firm into new realms and building on its architectural legacy in Malta and abroad.
