Sultana’s clients are predominantly art collectors and his design flair is to merge the residential requirements of a domestic space with often large-scale visual art, sculpture and installation pieces. Sultana’s palatial home at Albany, the Piccadilly landmark known to be London’s first apartment complex, and also his sixteenth-century palazzo in Malta – the country where he grew up and for which he now serves as an Ambassador of Culture – have also appeared on the covers of the world’s leading interior design magazines.
