The Park of Nations

This modern neighbourhood was established as a residential and commercial destination during the World Expo in 1998. A wealth of cultural and sporting options for digital nomads and travellers are within walking distance from the Residences including the Lisbon Oceanarium, Knowledge Pavillion, National Ballet of Portugal, Cable Car and Lisbon’s main event venue, Altice Arena.

The careful urban renewal program that followed the World Expo has resulted in a neighbourhood surrounded by iconic architecture, unique parks and gardens, a marina and sports facilities such as an outdoor gym, street basketball, a pump track and numerous walking and biking trails.

Park of Nations is also Lisbon’s key Urban Art district with artists such as Fernanda Fragateiro, Hundertwasser and Bordalo II who have contributed to the culture of the area. Various new international artists continue to be invited by the local council to add to the existing pieces of art to make the Park of Nations the world’s best outdoor museum for outdoor urban art.

Lisbon airport is 10 minutes drive away whilst Lisbon old town is 20 minutes by car. The modern “Oriente Station” connects the Park of Nations district both to Lisbon’s old town and airport, but also to the North and South of Portugal through its vast bus, train and metro connections.

Families

Martinhal Residences provide a luxury city experience for short and long-term family stays in Lisbon, with extensive facilities for children including on-site babysitting, childcare concierge, a kid’s pool, and family-friendly dining. A wealth of cultural and sporting options for families are within walking distance from Martinhal’s new development including the Lisbon Oceanarium, Knowledge Pavillion, cable car and the Park of Nation’s numerous parks and outdoor spaces.

Families can also extend their stay and add on a couple of nights at Martinhal Chiado to explore old Lisbon, or look to heading South to Portugal’s Algarve where Martinhal has 2 further properties designed for family holidays.

Digital nomads

Lisbon continues to be one of the most attractive places for the growing digital nomad community. A raft of new government initiatives in 2023 and a strong forecasted investment market will further strengthen appeal to international entrepreneurs in the year ahead. And its popularity is expected to grow further with Portugal’s highly anticipated Digital Nomad Visa which launched on October 30, 2022. The visa permits remote workers from non-EU countries to apply for a temporary-stay visa of up to one year or a residency permit that can be renewed for up to five years. To qualify, applicants must earn at least 2,800 euros per month.

For those seeking what The Future Laboratory referred to as regenerative remote working, Martinhal Residences synthesise the elements needed for the optimal work from anywhere experience providing the perfect model for work and play. High speed fibre internet as standard, on-site technical support, 24hr concierge, dedicated office spaces, proximity to transport links and a 10-minute drive to the airport are balanced with wellness amenities, the United Lisbon International School, childcare and the wealth of cultural and sporting options close by.

Design and art at Martinhal Residences

Throughout the property’s communal areas and restaurant and within the individual apartments, Martinhal will showcase some of the best of Portugal’s creative arts scene including pieces by Kruella D’Enfer, Graça Paz, Pedro Batista, Vasco Águas and Tamara Alves as well special installations by Portuguese street art legend, Bordalo II.

Food

The Spring opening of the Martinhal Residences will also welcome its new all-day restaurant ‘Terrace’. The restaurant, café and bar will be a welcome addition to Lisbon’s Park of Nations neighbourhood with its chic design, local art, high ceilings adorned with plants, and outside terrace and esplanade.

Open all day, the family-friendly space goes from a cosy café in the morning to a fast paced-grab-and-go at lunchtime and an elegant restaurant in the evenings. Guests can grab Portuguese pastries served with homemade Martinhal jams, Royal Rawness coffee, Companhia Portugueza do Cha teas, homemade ice creams and fresh bites to eat and take-in the surrounding Park of Nations, which is dotted with some of Lisbon’s most exciting street art.

As well as being a space to relax and meet, guests will be able to enjoy and admire one of Portugal’s most celebrated artists. Bordalo II’s most sought after artworks – The Koala – which is featured in his 7-minute film, REWILD, is proudly displayed on Terrace’s wall.
