The creative workshops of La Junqueira are located in a renovated 18th-century mansion with huge windows and antique Azuleju tiles.

A new art space has appeared in the center of Lisbon, designed for art residencies with different programs. Its founder, curator Stephanie Mullier conceived La Junqueira as a bright and joyful place where artists can both retire for creativity and be inspired by communicating with each other. The philosophy of the institution is reflected in the bright interiors of a small mansion, which used to be an elementary school.

Mullier minimized any significant changes in the architecture of the building of the XVIII century. She drew a cheerful accent palette from the drawing of the traditional azuleju tile, which covers the lower part of the walls in one of the halls on the ground floor. In order to restore the old tiles, Mullier turned to the specialists of the Azuleju National Museum. And in other rooms of the residence, the hostess supplemented the milky-white “background” with blocks of sunny yellow and sky blue.

The decor at La Junqueira is eclectic: Mullier found objects with history in antique and vintage shops, and also used several modern things — for example, a pair of orange Superoblong sofas designed by Jasper Morrison for Cappellini and a minimalist Vibia lamp in the staircase hall. The design classics of the mid-20th century – Charles and Ray Eames and Harry Bertoya chairs, George Nelson lamp, Jean Prouvet chairs – look quite organic in a bright living room.
