Groundbreaking Brazilian architect Marcio Kogan has just put his final touches on the stunning L'AND Vineyards Hotel, located in the heart of Alentejo, the south-central region of Portugal. The 22 suite structure is engulfed in rows of grape vines, a stunning lake, and the historic Castle of Montemor, providing an atmosphere of understated luxury, natural beauty, peace and tranquility.
The angular white structure is known on site as the Reception Building; where Kogan created a contemporary reinterpretation of Roman and Arabic atrium architecture, in addition to a spacious living room, library, gift shop.
The building also houses the winery , spa, and restaurant. Kogan's plush decoration of the suites creates an atmosphere of tasteful luxury striving to achieve beauty through simplicity and the small details; the décor makes use of wood and natural stone to provide a serene yet sumptuous living space.
The interiors are warm in color and rich in materials, a clever contrast to the crisp white exteriors.
Kogan designed two types of rooms; The Sky View Suites and the Land View Suites. In the Sky View Suites guests can sleep under the stars with a giant skylight over their bed, or guests can opt for the Land View Suites, which have breathtaking views of the lake.
