The owner of Santa Clara lives here with his family on the last floor. The idea of 'home' is particularly poignant for Joao Rodrigues, the Founder and Owner of Silent Living, having spent his life working as a pilot, caught in the constant to-and-fro of traveling and returning. It's this feeling that inspired him to create a hotel that would be an oasis from the fast-paced life of modern cities, but also make a connection with them.
The hotel was designed by internationally acclaimed architect Álvaro Siza Vieira, who wanted to create a space that would bring the outside in, so you can literally feel like you're surrounded by nature no matter where you are in the building. The architects used glass wherever possible so guests can enjoy views of Lisbon's historic center—and even see it change throughout the day as they move through different rooms!
Our stay in Lisbon was a press stay.
Thank you to Santa Clara 1728 for having us!
