Hotel do Convento Salvador
Lisbon, 2016



Convento Salvador Hotel, located at Alfama historical neighborhood, is an adaptation of one of the oldest Lisbon convents. This project supports the activity of Convento do Salvador Centre (which belongs, along with the Hotel, to the Association for Children’s Cultural Promotion – APCC) that operates under the same roof, and is decorated with works of artists such as Ana Hatherly, Paula Rego, Pedro Cabrita Reis, João Pedro Croft, Julião Sarmento, among others.
Looking for paying a tribute to portuguese tiles, Pedrita studio was invited to create a panel for the Hotel entrance hall.
Continuing the work developed with industrial, end-of-the-line tiles and following the same concept as the panels made for Capristanos caffé and Best Guess For This Image solo show, we were captivted by the international uncertainty of the portrayed person, in this case queen Catarina, who would have lived in the convent.
