Project description

Jupiter Hotel, located in the centre of Lisbon, is comprised of many light and open spaces and has been designed to offer comfort to guests. A key prerequisite of the design was to meet challenging acoustics requirements. The hotel achieved the required high acoustic performance especially between the different areas of the building, as well as an excellent finish for the large areas existing in the hall and the reception area. Challenges included defining the correct solution for the wet areas existing in the hotel and increasing the quality of the sound conditions of the different areas, particularly in the rooms.
