Architect António Falcão Costa Lopes has an excellent eye for spotting architectural potential and buildings with ‘good bones’, exploiting their locational aspects, construction aesthetics and design scope for development. From heritage buildings, boulevard appeal, commercial to residential, António loves design, and is a collector of iconic culture, a restorer and curator of modern pieces that adorn his projects into a seamless cohesion of style and architecture.
António’s particular strength is his ability to look beyond the basic architectural drawing – he conjures special concepts and masters the definition of space and how it should and could be used. Increasing asset values, his highappeal properties are our hallmark, and an integral element to the label Casa Fortunato.
In close collaboration with architects, master planners, interior architects and industrial designers, António has built a strong reputation within the Portuguese world across hospitality, commercial and residential sectors.
We only have nine bedrooms which we consider to be very fortuitous, this is because ‘nine’ is a sacred number, not only does it represent wisdom but it is also the symbol of completion and fulfilment. Nine is thought to be a number of great magic and power, and we believe that Casa Fortunato echoes this through the unique and individual atmosphere that she radiates.
The winding, cobbled streets of Lisbon are made for searching out unique treasures, from buzzing restaurants to antique shops. Soak up the lively hum of Europe’s oldest and most charming cities.
We are Filipa and Antonio Fortunato and, together with our four children (and our dog!), we have taken a shared dream and transformed it in to an exceptional reality. Casa Fortunato is the result of many years of planning and many more of love and we can’t wait to show you what we’ve achieved.
