Travelling is never a waste of time


Nómada Concept Hotel was an architecture project competition that made us proud of the work presented. It was a one-way travel but it was well worth it.

Below is a longitudinal section from a duplex apartment. The building included an hotel, apartments and three shops.

The concept

Travel was the basis for the concept developed. The idea of travel is present all over the hotel, each floor representing a journey and Lisbon operating as a starting point for the rest of the world.
With the development of new technologies, traveling became a constant in the business world.
With globalization several professionals are driven to live their life on a permanent journey because they need to travel to perform their occupation.


To create a name for this hotel we had in mind the personalisation of this lifestyle, the type of personas that will attend the hotel. This persona lives in an ongoing discovery, they are explorers of the world with an entrepreneurial spirit. The journey is a part of their lives and Lisbon is the starting point.

The name Nómada is the reinterpretation of a lifestyle.
