L Pool by Luis Vidal

Continuing with our consistent commitment to culture and including contemporary art as part of our hotels, we present the "L Pool". 

In the inner courtyard of our hotel in Porto you will find the star piece of chic&basic Gravity, the “L Pool”, an interactive contemporary art piece by artist Luis Vidal.

The piece consists of an outdoor garden with a swimming pool, palm trees, tables and chairs, which the artist has folded in half. One of the halves is on a horizontal plane through which the public can walk and the other half is on a vertical plane that is impossible to access, generating an impossible garden with plants, tables and chairs that climb up the wall.

A unique place that invites you to question reality. Normality is boring!

The photographs were taken in the rooms as well as in the restaurant and common areas.
