MINIMALISM MINDFULNESS
  • Casas Na Areia: Micro Dwelling in Portugal
























    Nelson Garrido


    Casas na Areia is a paradisiac destination and micro hotel that has proven to deliver greatly.

    Located one hour South of Lisbon in an ocean-side region known for its magnificent white-sand beaches, fresh seafood and excellent wine. The hotel co-exists with the Sado River without trying to be anything but an honest place of rest and relaxation.

    The subdued decor and organic architecture of these four bungalows were extremely well thought out. Designed by Manuel Aires Mateus, the mission was to break barriers between the outer and the inner space, bringing nature in, quite literally, bearing all the flooring and having sand throughout the main cabin — thus provoking a communion with nature inside and out.

    It’s commendable to see more and more architects trying to share with nature rather than imposing themselves on it. We're coming into a beautiful time of realizing how stunningly "enough" the world already is and how little we need to bother it on order to make it comfortable and functional.

    The fully minimalist interiors have everything you need and attest to the beauty of a less-is-more mentality and my wandering soul simply aches to visit some day. I fell for it at the first sight of those thatched roofs and sandy floors.
