Eduardo Capinha Lopes, the brilliant architect behind the landmark building, has crafted mesmerizing spaces that captivates the senses.

The building seamlessly integrates nature and architecture, featuring a beautiful green façade adorned with Portuguese Olive Trees, and allowing guests to benefit from beautiful, lush greenery from their luxury apartments. A stunning vertical garden was created to connect the vast outdoor garden areas to the public park on the South side of the building.

Architect João Cerejeiro was enlisted as the landscape architect to transform this idea into reality. The use of greenery throughout the property provides a seamless transition from nature outside to the interior spaces, along with floor-to-ceiling windows that bathe the hotel in natural light and provide each room with unparalleled views of the majestic River Tagus and Parque das Nações.
Martinhal Oriente Terrace Restaurant
Restaurant Terrace is a sophisticated “chameleon” – a generous space with different food and drink moments throughout the day – breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as well as mid-day meals. Terrace’s ceilings are also adorned with plants, and the modern and vibrant ambience of the restaurant extends to the spacious and elegant outside terrace.

Attention was devoted to lighting details, evident in many places throughout the hotel. The meticulous landscaping surrounding the building, including the captivating vertical garden, required a unique and striking illumination. The Sterns collaborated with a specialized German lighting designer to build a versatile lighting system that allows for creating distinct moods and characters, both for the building’s exterior and the enchanting gardens, accentuating the beauty of the various trees and plants.

In the interior pool, a mesmerizing LED light beam gracefully traverses the main wall captivatingly embedded within the structure. As it reflects upon the water’s surface, it continues its captivating journey across the pool to the other side before tracing its path once again along the floor, creating an artwork of light. For Terrace restaurant, Lighting was crucial to set the different moods and curate the perfect ambiances, and all the beautiful lamps used are from the brands Olev and Vibia. Meanwhile, all lighting used on the hotel rooms are from the exceptional SLV brand.

The owners, the Sterns, worked closely with the architect Capinha Lopes and his chosen interior design team, Romano, to create sophisticated furniture pieces which are contemporary and beat the passage of time, which continue to inspire and are glamourous. Great craftsmanship, resources and attention to detail came together to bring the detailed designs to life, creating the beautiful, high-quality bespoke furniture pieces that adorn the apartments, prioritizing sophistication, comfort, and wellbeing. All furniture was custom-built by Época Gold, an exceptional furniture brand from the north of Portugal.
Colour plays a vital role in interior design projects and was central to give the rooms personality while ensuring they feel relaxing. The designers skilfully incorporated a palette of rich blues, yellows, and aquas through accessories and fabrics, infusing a cozy ambiance into the glamorous setting. By opting for neutral tones in larger elements like carpets, sofas, and curtains, they achieved a balanced backdrop that evokes tranquillity. The strategic use of natural materials, along with subtle black and gilded accents, added a touch of sophistication to the furniture, striking the perfect balance between comfort and allure.
