Inscription.  This building in the historical district of Kalorama houses the Embassy and the Consulate of the Republic of Malta. It was built in 1903 on the plans of the noted American architect Waddy Butler Wood (1869-1944). In 1987 it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Wood is primarily known for designing banks and government buildings. His most renowned work is the Woodrow Wilson House and the United States Department of the Interior. Both buildings are in Washington D.C.

This house is actually a twin. Wood built two identical houses on Connecticut Avenue, on two adjacent plots, 2017 and 2019. These two identical houses are known historically as the Wood-Deming House. They are built in the style of Colonial Revival architecture.

Malta acquired the building in 1967, three years after its Independence.

The chancery is open from
Monday to Friday from 10 am to 4 pm
