HOT DEALS AND NEW HOTELS
ARCHITECTURE / DESIGN
Architecture: Pedro Guimar„es
Designer: Pedro Guerreiro
Pedro Guimar„es is well known for iconic concept-buildings, specially in historical towns. He transformed a historic manor building from the 18th century in the heart of Caminha into a sophisticated oasis for art and wine lover alike, harnessing the natural beauty of the region and its local art and heritage through its dramatic combination of contemporary art and environmental sustainability.
Design & Wine Hotelís architectural and interior designs embody the propertyís concept down to the last detail. The hotel expresses its harmonious relationship with the surrounding landscape through its sustainable design: solar panels power the property, an automatic lighting system in each room conserves energy, and a strict environmental policy allows guests to recycle. But the most striking element of Design & Wine Hotelís progressive and sustainable architectural design is the new building built to house the hotelís five suites. Weighing 18 tons, this sleek steel structure rotates 35 degrees only supported by a central pillar with a diameter of 2 m. Guests can fall asleep while looking at the mountains and awaken overlooking the serene Minho River.
Design & Wine Hotelís interiors offer more than a glimpse into the cutting-edge of techno-sustainability, however. Each room designed by the award-winning Portuguese designers is distinct. Reflecting the hotelís commitment to the arts, each bespoke room and suite features a distinct theme ranging from video to street art, offsetting sleek, minimal furnishing with large-scale, bold graphic accents. For a glimpse into the local art scene, guests can visit Whitebox, an event and exhibition space within the hotel designed especially for rotating temporary exhibitions of works by artists.
