Garden Destination: Hotel Viura by Designhouses

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.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
