ARCHITECTURE

SAMUEL TORRES DE CARVALHO & JOÃO CORRÊA NUNES

Tucked away on a narrow street, Memmo Alfama is one of Lisbon’s hidden treasures. The hotel blends seamlessly into the surrounding buildings in perfect harmony with the neighborhood’s tradition and history. A mural by the renowned young Portuguese street artist Alexandre Farto aka Vhils graces the side of the building, setting the stage for the Memmo Alfama’s earthy and subtle design approach. Madrid-based architect Samuel Torres de Carvalho—who also oversaw the restoration of the hotel’s sister property Memmo Baleeira—led the re-design of this 19th-century structure. The hotel’s crowning architectural highlight is its terrace, which offers panoramic views over the red rooftops of Lisbon.

INTERIOR DESIGN

UNPRETENTIOUS PLEASURES

The design team at Memmo Alfama put an emphasis on tactile and long-lasting materials. An abundant use of wood and warm tones creates a soothing, homey ambience that balances the authentic with the contemporary. With their high-quality linens, natural woods, and a rich sandy palette accented by cool grays, each room is a study in simple sophistication. Subtle details round out the experience, from blackout shutters that ensure a restful night’s sleep to intuitive touch lighting.
