See the De Lemos Guesthouse in Portugal that Contours along the Landscape

Carvalho Araújo Architects bring us the De Lemos guesthouse in Passos do Silgueiros, Portugal. It is a private complement to a winery and restaurant, containing spaces for wine storage, analysis and critique. Contouring along the rocky landscape, the house snakes around the angular topography. Its flat rooftop behaves like a walkway for taking strolls or admiring the view. According to the architect, the design is inspired by the “beauty of the linear rhythm of the vineyards.”
