Quinta das Lágrimas
Coimbra, Portugal

Respecting history with a contemporary twist

Broadway Malyan was commissioned to transform the 4-star Quinta das Lágrimas boutique hotel in Coimbra after successfully winning an open competition held by its owners. The project included redesigning all guest rooms, the lobby, the corridors, the bar and restaurant as well as re-landscaping the 12 hectare gardens.

The hotel is synonymous with a royal legend from the 14th century so the design included strong elements of blue, the royal colour of Portugal, as well as introducing modern classic furniture that complemented the hotel’s existing historic artwork.

The hotel is set within a stunning garden with a number of mature trees and a patterned carpet that represented the shadows from the leaves while exposed polished timber was also a key element of the design concept.

Quinta das Lágrimas is a historically important building in Portugal and so it was important that the refurbishment honoured the past but with modern interventions that met the client’s aspirations of creating a luxury hotel that also provides its guests with a cultural experience.
