Design & Wine Hotel

Design & Wine Hotel Barbosa & Guimaraes Arquitectos

Pedro Guimarães has transformed a historic manor building from the 18th century in the heart of Caminha into a sophisticated oasis for art and wine lovers alike. Design & Wine Hotel’s architectural and interior designs embody the property’s 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 recycling policy.
The most striking element of Design & Wine Hotel’s progressive and sustainable architectural design is the new building that houses the hotel’s 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. However, Design & Wine Hotel’s

interiors offer more than a glimpse into the cutting-edge of techno-sustainability. Reflecting the hotel’s 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.
