contributed by Tom_van_Malderen

The 19-th century British Garrison Chapel, one of many abandoned buildings in Valletta, was converted into the Malta Stock Exchange by Architecture Project in 2001. To extend the use and adaptability of the building, the original shell was conserved, while inside, a new steel structure reorganized the space around an atrium. The new structure is independent of the historical exterior shell, allowing it to be removed if necessary. A cleverly designed cooling system, using sprays of fine water particles, was placed within the roof's original wooden-beam structure, increasing air-quality and the use of the central open space.

Please note that the cleverly designed cooling system does not fully function, the spraying of fine water particles was never been put into practice due to condensation formation.
