For once, we switch off the light to illuminate, and switch it on to tell a story.
Santa Clara 1728
Santa Clara 1728
Lisbon, Portugal / 2016
An 18th Century building has been transformed into a hotel with six enchanting suites.
The Portuguese architect Manuel Aires Mateus has just completed a fascinating project in the historic and cultural city centre of Lisbon.
Restructuring was done respecting the building’s heritage, adding tranquillity and comfort thanks to the purity that characterises the designer’s work. The result is a quiet house where visitors are given a warm welcome and treated like old friends. Santa Clara 1728 is surrounded by monuments, regal palaces and a park with a breath-taking view of the river. The lighting in the hotel is simply a story. It is used to give depth to the space and welcome its visitors, starting at the thresholds, continuing along the corridors and to the different floors… Take your time.
