Design-led Aparthotel group Locke set to expand into Portugal with the opening of Locke de Santa Joana in Lisbon.

Lifestyle aparthotel brand Locke will this summer expand into Portugal with the opening of its sixteenth property, Locke de Santa Joana in Lisbon. 

Located in the city’s vibrant centre, a stone’s throw from Lisbon’s iconic boulevard, Avenida da Liberdade, the project is Locke’s biggest to date; comprising 370 apartments, hotel rooms, penthouses, and suites across nine floors, alongside social spaces including 10 exciting new food & beverage outlets together with White Rabbit Projects and Spiritland, a co-working space, event & meeting spaces, a museum, and a stunning outdoor pool with sun terrace. 

True to Locke’s design ethos, which is rooted in locality, acclaimed design studios Lázaro Rosa-Violán and Post Company collaborated to lead the transformation of Locke de Santa Joana, which comprises the remnants of a 17th century convent with a contemporary, purpose-built hotel, approaching it with sensitivity and carefully integrating old and new to reimagine this important historical site. The design concept within the public areas, overseen by Lázaro Rosa-Violán, takes inspiration from its history, drawing upon the convent and auxiliary spaces to retell the story of the site’s layered history to a modern audience, with each space retaining its own distinct character.      

 A celebration of culture and art, the rooms have been thoughtfully designed by Post Company. The playful interiors of each unit combine historic architectural fragments with contemporary comforts in natural tones and tactile materials: the use of local fabrics, ceramics, and stone finishes, all quintessentially Portuguese materials, is offset against contemporary lighting, bespoke furniture design, and fully equipped kitchens. Every aspect of the design offers a subtle nod to the building’s heritage while retaining a strong connection to the modern, evolving city in which it is situated.

Set to become a new cultural hotspot in the city for travellers and locals alike, Locke de Santa Joana’s impressive food and beverage offering features multiple venues on site, encompassing bars and restaurants serving fresh local produce, bustling with music and culture, alongside co-working spaces that accommodate the balance of work and play. A standout feature of the hotel is its striking and verdant external courtyard pool and lounge spaces, which allow guests to unwind and enjoy the warm climate of the city in comfort and style.  

Opening rates from 200 EUR per night for a Locke Room with a balcony.  More information on Locke de Santa Joana can be found at
