Given the overwhelming view, the challenge was to establish a sequence of eye-catchers and wind barriers that create points of interest all over the grounds. In the end several circuits were created – some through a covered bridge, others on the ground – which intersect or even join up at certain points. The hotel’s flat surfaces and many angles create stark shadows that seem to carve the entire space as well.

Architecture

TIAGO OLIVEIRA

Confident in its simplicity and conceding to what mother nature offers, the stunning property by architect Tiago Oliveira is all straight edges, yet still conforms to the slate outcroppings high above the village. Layering itself down a slate cliff, the hotel is cut into the rocky landscape in a series of thick, stone walls.

Floors of black stone are strewn with grey rugs and classic black-and-white photography on the walls further emphasizes the monochrome look.
