A Contemporary Guest House in Portugal

A modernist take on Portuguese traditions, Casa Um reimagines the style and details of typical architecture from the Algarve. The result is a soft minimalistic space that’s private, contemporary and homely. The first guest house from design-led hospitality brand theAddresses, Casa Um, which in Portuguese means House Number One, is housed in an old farmhouse, masterfully renovated and extended by Lisbon-based architecture practice Atelier Rua whose minimalist redesign harmoniously interweaves old and new elements. This architectural hideaway is set on two different levels, with the communal areas on the upper level and the newly built bedrooms extending out to the lower level. The original farmhouse is transformed into a modern kitchen and living room, completely updated with large windows overlooking the inner patio and garden. The intimate patio, originally the barn, is set around the old bread oven and the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee in the first rays of sunshine. The former stables located at the far end of the house now houses the dining room, complete with a glass-walled wine cellar and views of the pool and beyond. More information about the house and rental options can be found here.
