At Hotel Liberty in Offenburg, the concept of freedom is redefined. That’s because the hotel is located in a former prison for radical visionaries and pioneers of freedom and democracy. The team from Knoblauch-Design is responsible for the transformation from a dreary prison to a fascinating design hotel. Thus, the historical and sensitive heritage of the building was rethought with the right portion of comfort and lightness and a careful handling of existing substance. Retreat, concentration and the moment are also needs of our contemporary society and form the philosophical basis of the design concept.
The hotel with its total of 38 exceptional rooms and suites consists of two separate buildings and a new intermediate building. The rooms and suites are distributed in the buildings, while the public area with restaurant, bar and lobby is located in the large glass cube sitting in between. On the one hand, it is a visual link between the two hotel wings, but it also symbolises the former prison yard. On an intermediate level, a living room for the hotel guests was built in, based on the former common room of the prisoners. Many robust materials and dark, rough surfaces are used throughout the hotel. Many of the former cells have been connected to create more spacious rooms. The thick original walls and steel doors do not let the history of the building be forgotten, but they create a new definition of cosiness and combine with the expectations of the discerning guest. Fine parquet flooring and multiple vaults made of historic bricks, mouldings hidden in the walls now flood the old structures with warm light. Large, free-standing bathtubs and exquisite fittings as well as noble interiors turn the rooms into cosy oases of well-being paired with uniqueness.

Torel Palace Lisbon is one of the latest wonders of Lisbon’s seven hills. Consisting of two mansions built in 1902 and 1904, it combines different histories in one. The main building was a private residence, while the other was the Bishop of Lisbon’s former guesthouse. In 2019, these two buildings were joined by a modern apartment building. The outer courtyards decorated with a flower garden make the colors of the buildings stand out.
The overall renovation respected the characteristics of the architecture and kept the details of the old rooms, stairs, floors and gardens. Isabel Sá Nogueira, the designer of the Torel Palace in Lisbon, invited to give the interior areas of the unit a new set of clothes. The objective was to create spaces that were unforgettable, functional and comfortable and that create a unique and inimitable atmosphere. An atmosphere that could reflect the past while creating new memories for those who experience them. This set of historic mansions needed an appropriate theme, and with the Portuguese Kings and Queens, it was quickly found.
The décor of the 31 rooms and apartments is a mix of past and present, creating an atmosphere full of charm and personality. The rooms remind of the comfort of home, but with an elegant atmosphere that together with simplicity of the details underlines traditional Portuguese style, united with modern and contemporary touches.
All of the Rooms at the boutique unit are designed individually. The unit wanted to create a warm and sophisticated atmosphere while mixing modern amenities with the history of Portugal. At the private gardens or from the pool, guests have a breathtaking view over the city. Honoring the royals of Portugal, the unit gave the name of the Portuguese Kings and Queens to all of the rooms. In the pink building, each room is named after Queens, the name of the Portuguese Kings were given to the rooms of the blue building and the rooms in the white building were named after houses of the monarchy.
The unit has one restaurant called Terraço 23 which provides an informal open-air experience that is ideal for when the weather is fine and has a Winter Garden for an indoor experience.

The award-winning hotel Torel Avantgarde is Porto´s sexiest five-star hotel. It’s a place for the traveler who seeks the extravagant and the extraordinary art of Portugal. The building’s origins date back to the 1940s when “creativity” in its broadest sense was the watchword. Art at the time was no longer seen merely as a complement but as the focus. The break with what came before and the championing of anti-traditional art forms and new frontiers of experimentalism inspired the artists of this generation and marked an era of artistic excellence. Inspired by this era, the Torel Avantgarde welcomes you with its museum–like experience in complete harmony with the comfort and detail characteristic of the Torel Boutiques. The aim behind the approach was not just to emphasize the country’s virtues, but also to challenge guests’ senses – they are invited to live, sense and experience art.
Also the design of the hotel’s interiors was inspired by the Avantgarde years. It was planned by Isabel Sá Nogueira, who was responsible for designing the common areas, and by Paula Vasconcellos and Francisca Navio, from Nano Design, who styled all of the hotel’s bedrooms. All of the 49 rooms and suites of the hotel are designed individually. In addition, all of the rooms got a specific name after famous Avantgarde artists, from the field of design, literature or architecture. The design of each room reflects the personality and vision of the artists the room is named.
At Torel Avantgarde guests can find the Calla Wellness & Spa with two treatment rooms for facial and body beauty and relaxation treatments, one gym fully equipped and one Turkish bath. Tenro by Digby is the hotel’s restaurant where meat is the main protagonist at the menu.
