QUINTA DAS AVELEIRAS RURAL HOTEL
Torre Moncorvo, 2008
The project design for a hotel unit located in an extensive
and qualified farm in the hillsides of Torre de Moncorvo.
The intervention organizes a programme that is common
for a unit with this typology. It is essentially distributed around a central patio and a pre-existing construction, which is functionally integrated, with all the bedrooms facing the surrounding farm’s planted and cultivated areas and the remaining social and common areas for the guests facing the hillside overlooking the city and the wide valley.
The sobriety and depuration of the solutions and design ensure it an almost imperceptible presence in the schist terraced landscape. In this case, care was also taken to preserve and value the area’s profuse and varied tree coverage, characterized by an extensive vineyard, fruit trees, conifers and softwoods.
