Category: Best Luxury Residential Renovation for Palácio Santa Helena in Portugal

Palácio Santa Helena is a 16th-century building that used to be occupied by the Counts of St. Martin, holders of high positions in the Portuguese court, and their families for over four hundred years. Today, the recently rehabilitated residence features a mere 20 apartments, each of unique size and style, representing a renovation success story that Stone should be proud of.

Stone is an architecture firm that specializes in the rehabilitation and restoration of buildings and historic neighborhoods. It was founded over a decade ago by Arthur and Geoffroy Moreno, who have an inspiring commitment to work on and deliver projects that will not only stand the test of time but also honour the rich history and heritage of each community and neighborhood more broadly.

In 2022, Luxury Lifestyle Awards awarded the firm the title Best Luxury Residential Renovation for Palácio Santa Helena in Portugal for reimagining the historically significant building into a modern residence that offers the ultimate in sophisticated and luxury living. Stone was also awarded Best Luxury Real Estate Developer in Portugal and Best Luxury Residential Development for Palácio Santa Helena in Portugal.

According to the Moreno duo, “the renovation of Palácio Santa Helena was a very special opportunity for us at Stone considering the history of the building and the people that occupied it. We were very inspired by its heritage, but we were also very excited to explore the building’s new potential and create a new life that would sustain it for many more centuries to come”.

By focusing on architectural, construction, and design interventions that lead to the creation and development of better neighborhoods, Stone has been able to deliver impressive work, justifying its reputation as a leading renovator in Portugal.

Stone is widely respected for its quality-standard work in the planning and execution of projects. On Palácio Santa Helena, the innovative and design-centric team exceeded expectations to deliver a creatively superior development.

Their approach to Palácio Santa Helena was centered on conducting a detailed assessment of the various aspects of the project (for example, architecture, landscaping), developing a thorough project plan that outlined details, and – importantly – observing the existing forms.

No two apartments at Palácio Santa Helena are the same. Whether you favor a quiet indoor garden for relaxing afternoons for two, a swimming pool to have fun with the family on weekends, or the simply stunning front view of the Tagus to accompany dinners with friends, the exclusive residence delivers on its promise of timeless beauty.
