Text description provided by the architects. The Palacio do Grilo is a restaurant in the middle of a living theater in Lisbon. An atypical project and design in an intact 18th century palace, a project composed by the architect Julien Labrousse.
Palacio do Grilo is a restaurant in the middle of a living theater, where each member of the team is an actor or performer, ready to surprise you. A joyful and festive artistic experience. Due to its particular shape, the place is a curiosity, a hybrid and unclassifiable cultural and historical place. Its singular and slightly eccentric approach offers a unique cultural experience.
All the scenography and furniture were made to measure for the project. This is a singular design made from solid eucalyptus wood and oak sourced from Portugal. A design that plays on simple and contemporary shapes that contributes to the atmosphere.
The place has been kept as it was, the patinas of time have been accentuated to enhance their charm, and the abandoned stable has been reconnected to the Palace to make it a room with a different tone. Large-format sculptural sculptures and paintings were made to adorn the walls. A sculptural bar, also in solid eucalyptus wood, stands proud in the old stables. In other rooms, old furniture has been reinvested and exhibited like a museum.
The architecture and furniture design were created by the architect Julien Labrousse, the works of art and the performance work by the artist Olivier Urman. And the police station by Elsa Kikoine. The team is also Marta Moreira & Margarita Matos.
