Authenticity & Sustainability Respect and Deferenve to Nature
As our guests have described them, our properties are “harmoniously integrated into the surrounding landscape”. This deference extends to the location, design and services that promote the unique natural landscapes and seascapes of the Azores.
In fact, the architecture, building materials and site planning have been completed to minimize the impact on the wonderful natural surroundings of each destination. The minimalist architecture is both elegant and functional in order to focus on each location. Meanwhile, the interiors, which were designed and built exclusively for each project, hint to traditional or heritage elements unique to the islands. Many of these pieces include re-used local objects (such as milk containers from abandoned farms which were repurposed as lamps) and materials (such the chairs and tables that used iron frames and doormat-crafts for coverings).
Many of these projects were completed by artisans and craftsmen, and supported by local companies, during the design and construction. In addition, their expertise was fundamental in maintaining the level of quality during many of the later interventions and projects.
