Restoration of the Chalet of Countess D’Edla in Sintra (Pena Park-World Heritage Site)
CRERE is restoring the historic interiors of the Chalet of Countess d'Edla inserted in the Natural Park of Pena in Sintra (Classified as World Heritage).
The Chalet of the Countess of Edla was built by King Ferdinand II and his second wife Elise Hensler, Countess of Edla, between 1864-1869, following the model of the Alpine chalets that were then in fashion in Europe. In July 1999 the building was the object of arson which destroyed roofs, walls, pavements and all interior decoration. Crere is currently developing the second phase of the project, which includes the conservation of its artistic interiors, namely:
- Restoration of mural paintings on walls and ceilings
- Restoration of artistic plasterwork on walls and ceilings
- Traditional painting and finishing in timber elements with traditional techniques
- Finishing of floors according to traditional and original methods
The Interior spaces are under restoration until February 2013Artistic Stuccco and plasters / Mural paintings / Policromated wood
