Modern architecture: portuguese Hotel with green design

Take a look at a great example of how to mix nature and modern architecture, here in Design Contract. Miguel Correia’s studio Future Architecture Thinking – whose past projects include an angular red arts and culture centre – designed the Sobreiras Alentejo Country Hotel for a site near the village of Grândola, about an hour’s drive from Lisbon.

An infinity pool rise out towards the horizon on the eastern side of the building, where landscaping is kept to a minimum to emphazise, the hotel’s proximity to nature.

Each of the buildings features a row of gabled volumes, with strong white surfaces accentuating their minimal forms. Wooden frameworks incorporated into the east-facing elevations introduce a rustic detail that embrace the nearby amazing trees.
