One of the most exclusive condominiums in Cascais, Portugal, Quinta Patino residence has a project by Cristina Jorge de Carvalho Architecture and Interior Design Studio. The project compounds two phases of intervention: Interior Architecture and Interior Design. The conceptual approach is a little more classical, as opposed to the usual contemporaneity of the interior designer’s projects, but without losing the guiding line of the timelessness, elegance, luxury, and eclecticism that characterize Cristina Jorge de Carvalho’s works.
From Porto, oitoemponto is an architecture and decoration agency that conquers the luxury market. They decorate custom homes, but see themselves as much more than interior designers. “We're like the priest in the confessional or the doctor and the lawyer: as soon as we meet people we have to put them at ease and tell them there's no point in hiding facts because the diagnosis will take much longer,” says Artur Miranda. The diagnosis is the kind of decoration they will propose, a gesture that always presupposes a close relationship with the clients: “Our métier has a lot to do with psychoanalysis”, adds Jacques Bec, the other half of oitoemponto.

The “butterfly effect” is the term that sums up the entire creative concept of the BessaHotel Baixa interior design. Assuming the importance of the architectural program and taking advantage of its materiality, the interior design produced a purified breath using the visual ergonomics of soft tones and noble materials. Along with the mastery of proportion, there are notes of unique design that transport us to the fantastic world of butterflies, of which we highlight the metallic mesh that runs through the entire ceiling of the entrance lobby area that intensively refers to the texture of the cocoons of butterflies. The Spa area of the Hotel stands out for the quality of materials and finishes that attribute the refinement that an urban-looking hotel requires. Here the senses are refined and authenticity and well-being go hand in hand.
