It’s been a while since I have seen a hospitality project that grabs my attention like this one.  The Spanish design firm Designhouses, have recently completed the Hotel Viura, located in the Spanish wine region of Rioja Alavesa. Named after the most widely planted white grape variety in Rioja, Viura is a beautiful and exciting modern design that accentuates the old character of the town and blends with the landscape in a way that doesn’t try to hide within the environment but rather celebrates the character of the region.

It’s not a terribly big (only 26 rooms) project, but that many of the rooms have balconies where gardens have been created give the design a healthy look that I think only plants can impart.
