Description: Bairro Alto Hotel
A minimalist expression of a multitude of Lisboan influences, the lobby is remarkable for the sense of space and peace that it imparts; a marked contrast to the buzz of the streets outside. Guests are greeted by two large contemporary wrought iron sculptures, made by the celebrated artist Rui Chafes, suspended within alcoves carved out of traditional Lioz stone. On either side, two archways coated in white colonial lacquer, lead through to the bar on one side and the reception area on the other, this lacquer effect carried through into the restaurant area. Two dark green benches of sixteenth century design are the only furniture in the lobby, causing the eye to be naturally drawn to the abstract rose-shaped mosaic in the centre of the floor. This Venetian-styled 'terrazzo' marble floor runs throughout the hotel's public areas contributing to the fluidity of space and imparting a sense of calm. Bringing the outside in, Moorish-inspired 'azulejos' panels of green, white and cinnamon-colored tiles line the walls of the ground floor areas. These glazed tiles are a distinctive feature found on the exterior walls of traditional Portuguese houses.
