White Azores is the first hotel property owned and operated by the Singular Properties Group in Azores. We were integral in the renovation and refurbishment of this ten-room boutique hotel. The main challenge was to renew and enhance the characteristics of this 18th century fisherman’s house.
We wanted to highlight the island, the hotel’s sense of place, and the structure’s most special elements with site-specific design, while creating a strong connection with the surrounding landscape. For this, we played with the black (black island) and white (white concept) contrast, the absence and presence of light, and introduced pigments from São Miguel Island. We introduced design elements that echo the island’s volcanic stone and utilized pine wood native to the Azores. The restaurant was also redesigned, and we created more outdoor areas to enjoy and experience the rocky coastline and spectacular views.
