Guest Feature: Vineyard Villa, The Weekend House in Portugal
treniqblog | February 24, 2017

Situated in the district of Évora, Montemor-o-Novo is the perfect place for a weekend house for a family.


Designed to be the refuge of one family on weekends this Portuguese magnificent retreat is the work of two brilliant Architects and Interior Designers Ana Proença and Célia Mestre from Atelier Spacemakers.


The space demanded comfort, originality and authenticity, and from the perspective of the owners it would have to be contemporary, but several vintage pieces should be integrated naturally without any imposition. By suppressing several walls, the thorough and comprehensive intervention has changed the whole layout in both inside and outside spaces.

The project was painstakingly designed from the choice of finishing materials and monitoring the work of the furniture selection and its assembly. The house was developed on a single ground floor and it is characterised by modern architecture and clean lines, featuring large spaces and light fixtures, facing the exterior through large glass floors and patios.


The living room shares the same space with the dining area, while the kitchen merges with the back of the room in a volume linked by a system of hidden panels. In the dining area, the chairs belonging to the owners stand out, which live with the table designed by SPACEMAKERS studio, finished with ironwood and golden structure. The Pendant Lamp COLTRANE, by DelightFULL with minimalist lines and finished in black and gold, emerges as an element that, besides being functional, is a decorative and sculptural object, that stands out for its simplicity


The game and cinema room opens to the living room with a markedly masculine character, where two pieces stands out, the Veuve Clicquot snooker table and the DUKE Suspension Lamp, dramatic lighting piece that gives a generous scale.

In the suite, white, beige and woody tones dominate the chromatic palette of this space. In the reading corner stands out a neoclassical chest, which is one of the owner’s family pieces and it perfectly matches with the armchair and footrest designed by Charles Eames. The SINATRA floor lamp enhances the elegance and simplicity that was intended for this space.


Meet the Interior Designers
