Yesterday I had the privilege to volunteer at Open House Lisboa, where I was able to work at Santa Clara 1728.
This boutique hotel is located in Alfama and was designed by the architects Aires Mateus. The building used to be a house which was in a very bad state of degradation. The architects aimed to restore the old typology and carefully chose materials to complement the quality of past times...lime-washed walls, stone and marble, waxed pine.
The result is simple devine.
