As short-term rental properties drive up Lisbon’s housing prices, residents seeking to live in tourist-heavy neighbourhoods like Janelas Verdes must embrace unconventional real estate. Here, mirrored windows work to adapt a former art gallery into an inviting home. White walls, an open layout and a sculptural banister maintain some of the property’s former life, while soft mint-green cabinetry adds domestic warmth.

Downstairs, the already-calm retreat lets out a soft exhale, presenting a bright and spacious bathroom and open-concept living, office and bedroom space, all comfortably sheltered from the busy urban activity above.
