Torel Avantgarde is a brand-new, five-star boutique hotel in Porto - we just opened in early September 2017. The concept of Avantgarde for our
hotel is based on the building, which originates from the Estado-Novo period, i.e. the 1940s. Like avant-garde artists, we wanted to create
something completely new. Our vision was to establish a place where art is not only an add-on, but takes centre stage in every way.
The result is Torel Avantgarde, where you can fully immerse yourself into art, absorbing it in all its expressions. It is a space to live art, to touch art,
and to feel the heart and passion of the artist.
The Torel Avantgarde is a place where Art is lived in full, stimulating all the senses. We want you to look, feel and breathe art in the various spaces
of the hotel: at the reception, in the flower room, at the Digby restaurant, at the Balsamea spa and, of course, in all our rooms.
We have sought inspiration from avant-garde artists of exception, from the world of plastic arts, literature, science, music, architecture and design,
such as Francis Bacon, Charles & Ray, Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso, Nina Simone and Alberto Giacometti. The 47 rooms have a tailor-made décor,
based on the imagination of each artist and imparting their unique spirit and vision.
To fulfill this ambition, we turn to renowned Portuguese artists, artisans and interior designers. We celebrate Portugal, highlighting national
knowledge and talent. Together, we have created something bigger than ourselves: a vibrant place that highlights the creativity and ingenuity of the
great names of Art and Design.
We worked with four Portuguese artists - all from Porto - in the creation of this exciting space: Jorge Curval, Frederico Draw, Daniel Eime and Paulo
Neves. Their art is an integral part of the hotel - from the outside space to the reception, the restaurant and the rooms. In addition, the Torel
Avantgarde presents the works of Portuguese artists through exhibitions.
Interior designer Isabel Sá Nogueira was responsible for the decoration project of this boutique hotel. She was in charge of the common areas,
where the designer brought together the best of Portugal, combining art and modern design with some provocative notes. The collective Nano
Design - from Porto - was responsible for the decoration of the 47 individual rooms.
All of our rooms in Torel Avantgarde are named after a famous Avantgarde artist from the fields of art, design, literature, architecture, science etc:
Ranging from Francis Bacon, Charles & Ray Eames, Amadeu Souza-Cardoso to Alberto Giacometti.
The design and decoration of each room reflects the personality and specific vision of the artist.
