Beco da Bolacha is a new residential development is located on a very quiet street in the iconic Lapa neighbourhood, between the Hotel da Lapa and the Museu de Arte Antiga. This project has repurposed an old bakery into 10 remarkable units. The two buildings have different types of apartments, with areas ranging from 65m2 to 179m2, with private outdoor areas to enjoy the amazing weather, as well as the sights and sounds Lisbon has to offer, all this from the comfort of your own home.
The ground floor boasts a large deck and garden area while the apartments above have private balconies with clear views of the river Tagus. Each apartment offers large bay windows so that residents can enjoy Lisbon’s stunning natural light all year round.
One of the main features of these apartments is the open-plan design with its high ceilings and large bay windows and French doors that lead out to the outdoor space. The interior has a Portuguese vibe and zest from the light colours, use of natural stone and archway designs, all which combine to give the natural light permission to fill the room and create the impression of an infinite space.
As featured in the original design for the renovation of this building the addition of striking, spacious terraces adjoined to the building via elegant French doors, aids the occupants to relax, embrace and further enjoy the incredible light and views that can be appreciated from this area; thanks to the installation of warm and comfortable outside lighting, this can now be done at all times of the day and night.
On the top floor of Beco Bolacha is one fantastic apartment and two duplexes. The open plan, large windows and large terrace create great open volumes. The main living areas have a unique feel, elegantly combining high volumes with sloping ceilings. The living rooms open onto terraces offering the best views in Beco Bolacha.
Kitchens feature beautiful modern cabinets light-shaded fitting, ideally matching the sand-coloured tiles lining the walls. The kitchen area is articulated beyond the functional and doubles as living spaces to share and socialize.
Private, cosy and expansive – these are three words that perfectly encapsulate the high-ceilinged rooms. During the day they can be filled with invigorating natural light, while at night solid wooden shutters create a cocoon of privacy, calm and tranquillity.
Adjoining to the bedrooms are the elegant en-suite bathrooms with his and her sinks and dressing rooms. The style of these bathrooms is slightly different
to reflect the room; a darker colour is used for the upper parts of the walls with light coloured tiles to give an aquatic feeling while the new modern fittings give an elegant zest to the space.
The building also has the pleasure of boasting outdoor garden spaces for some of the apartments. This space has been carefully designed. The water features aid the creation of a quiet and peaceful place in the heart of the city, without any stress, giving you your own little island of tranquillity.
Timeless and classic, the entrance hallway opens onto high arching ceilings, light-hued walls and grey stone floors beautifully contrasting the dark shaded stairs.
