To continue our multi-function series this week, we are now traveling to another beautiful country to check out even more innovative interior designs. Located in Viseu, Portugal is a place where luxury is magnified three times! Who doesn’t love a hotel that has breathtaking views of its surrounding vast landscapes? How about a hotel that also includes a restaurant and winery? Another surprise that makes the architectural design of this place even more interesting is that it is also a minimalist guesthouse as well! Thanks to Carvalho Araujo, an architecture company based in Portugal, we are able to feast our eyes on a dwelling that is all around comfy in a lavish way!
This minimalist guesthouse, also known as Quinta de Lemos, features elongated corridors that lead to bedroom suites, lounges and other social areas. The infrastructure of the building is one of the running themes, as its exposed concrete and wood elements lead and inspires the design for the rest of the guesthouse. Simpler is better for this residence, and less furniture gives this minimalist guesthouse an ultramodern feel. The warm lighting that is added promotes a more intimate atmosphere for a place that blends so seamlessly with its rural environment.
If you are ever looking to get away from the never-ending buzz of the city, a minimalist guesthouse similar to the one Carvalho Araujo has helped to create would be a great escape! If you just so happen to find yourself traveling to Portugal, a trip to the Viseu countryside to enjoy a tranquil view and a glass of good wine would serve as a great experience!
