Opening in the spring of 2023, Casa Noble is a reimagined noble house, cultural salon and urban renewal project set across three historic buildings from three different centuries in Lisbon’s ancient Graça neighborhood.
About the House
Inspired by Brazilian modernism and the architectural traditions of old Lisbon, Casa Noble comprises 13 guest rooms, a restaurant set within a tropical garden, a gathering space for guests spreads throughout three interlocking rooms with a library and open fireplace, as well a residence for longer-term visitors with a private garden and terrace. The common terrace features extraordinary views over Graça down to the Tagus river below.
As the urban hub of our Places in Portugal, Casa Noble connects with Simple, our beach house, and the coastal farmstead we're developing on the Arrábida Coast. A year-round program of curated salons brings together the creative community of Graça and neighboring Alfama, one of the oldest arts and artisan districts in Europe.
Three structures from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries organically unite into a coherent whole, evoking the atmosphere of an elegant private home. Dark-wood, Brazilian modernist detailing augments the classical structure of the original 18th-century house, where the original architectural flow of interlocking salons creates space for social mixing and solitary moments of contemplation.
The heart of Casa Noble is the Library, with its open fireplace, space for intimate performance and discussion and its curated selection of books on urbanism, design, Portuguese craft and the artistic traditions of Old Lisbon. All guest rooms feature working fireplaces and views over the River Tagus or surrounding Graça, as well as bathrooms outfitted in green marble.
Casa Noble sits on a secluded residential square in one of Lisbon's oldest neighborhoods, Graça. Perched atop the city's highest hill, Graça offers some of Lisbon's most spectacular views. The neighborhood was once home to many noble palaces that were destroyed in the 1755 earthquake. With its organic labyrinth of hidden squares, twisting alleyways and staircases, Graça later became predominantly a workers district, also absorbing some of the artistic and cultural elements of neighboring Alfama.
Through a year-round program of thematically curated salons, Casa Noble hosts multidisciplinary gatherings around food, performance and ideas. Poetry readings and intimate live musical performances accompany guided discussions on diverse topics, from sustainable urban development to Portuguese artistic traditions to social topics of import to the community.
Garden Restaurant and Farm
Set within enclosed tropical gardens, our restaurant is supplied by the biodynamic gardens of Herdade do Meco, our 82-hectare clifftop farmstead an hour out of Lisbon on Portugal's Arrábida Coast. Freshly harvested seasonal organic produce and sustainably captured fish and seafood from the region guide a menu of simple, healthy cuisine inspired by Portuguese culinary traditions.
