Bessa Hotel Liberdade is a four-star hotel, located in one of the most exclusive areas of Lisbon, which occupies the terrain of two pre-existing buildings. The external intervention intended to reconcile the needs of the new program with the building’s architectural heritage, namely the preservation of the neoclassical facade. At the rear of the building, a new common space was created. The most striking feature is a vertical garden that covers the entire posterior facade, where green takes on the protagonist role, softening the impact of the building and giving the hotel a new life and color.
