{August 13, 1899 (London, UK) – April 29, 1980 (Los Angeles, USA)}

 

DISCOVER OUR MAISONETTE ALFRED HITCHCOCK:

In our Torel Avantgarde, we created the Maisonette Alfred Hitchcock, a room with a balcony a private jacuzzi, and pool, in honor of the “master of cinema”.

Our boutique hotel, through classic decor, represented Hitchcock's masculinity to honor his filmmaking era.

 

The pastel blue and gray panels reflect a gloomy atmosphere.   

On the walls, Jorge Curval’s panels show a large “film scene”, which together with small details, such as birds, portrays his most iconic films.

 

Based in the center of Porto, our hotel overlooking the Douro also has a private pool.

Meet the artist Alfred Hitchcock...

 

Sir Alfred Joseph Hitchcock was an English filmmaker, producer, and script writer, being one of the most influential and studied filmmakers of producers in the history of cinema.

Known as the 'Master of Suspense', he has directed more than 50 feature films in a career spanning six decades. Hitchcock became as famous as any of his actors thanks to his many interviews and guest appearances in most of his films, producing the TV anthology “Alfred Hitchcock Presents” (1955–65).

His films have been nominated 46 times for Oscars, including six wins. Although he never won the “Best Director” award, he was nominated five times.

In 1955, Hitchcock became a US citizen.

 

The "Hitchcockian" style includes using camera movement to mimic a person's gaze, turning viewers into voyeurs, and framing shots to maximize anxiety and fear.

 

“There is something more important than logic: imagination.” – Alfred Hitchcock
