Terraço Lisboa


The view over the Tagus River was set to shine as background of the Lisbon hills/valleys.

The water of the stone overflows and transforms the stone into a moving black wall.

The stone with water mirrors/reflects the sky and takes over the colour of the Tagus.

When it is windy, the bamboos touch each other, bringing sound and movement to the terrace.

The climbing srubs are lonicela, jasmin and bougainvillea, they give colour and scent/perfume throughout the year.

The walls are painted bulls-blood-red so that the reflection of the sun doesn’t bother the eye and defines at the distance the silhouette of Arrábida.
