Porto, Portugal

A 19th-century house goes minimalist

With a privileged location, right in the front line of the sea, Vila Foz Hotel & Spa offers the romanticism of 19th-century Portuguese architecture, with elegant decorative touches and noble materials, and the internationally celebrated designer Nini Andrade Silva's minimalist signature of simple, organic forms in a contemporary context. Majestic and unique, the palace takes us back to Porto’s upper bourgeoisie time, by keeping all the original trace of the luxurious architectural details of 19th century, adapted to nowadays modern luxury.


Rome, Italy

An industrial-chic hideaway

Housed in a building dating to 1880, world class Tristan Du Plessis designed the 42-room hotel with his signature industrial-chic, sultry style and a strong local connection. The newly opened hotel is located in the charming Via di Santa Maria dei Calderari, or the “street of the blacksmiths,” pays tribute to this lineage by using a variety of metals throughout the property, say, a blacksmith or metalworker used here—copper, brass, and so on—and mix that industrial look with something luxurious.


Antwerp, Belgium

Architecture – A modern-day sanctuary

The eclectic creativity of Flemish building styles popular throughout the centuries meet an understated soulful modernism, creating a perfect blend of both public and private spaces—August is a modern-day sanctuary set within a former Augustinian monastery in the heart of Antwerp. The story of August begins with owner, Mouche Van Hool and reshaped under the guidance of legendary Belgian architect and designer Vincent Van Duysen from five heritage-listed structure fashioned to a social hub for the city.


Edinburgh, Scotland

Scottish sophistication

The first member hotel in Scotland, Market Street Hotel, is set to disrupt Edinburgh’s traditional hotel scene with its unique brand of neo-brutalism that meets Scottish heritage. Designed by award-winning FG Stijl, the interiors channel a brutal beauty aesthetic inspired by the location’s character and history—think “cracked” walls juxtaposed with the minimalist lines of contemporary furniture and bursts of traditional Scottish fabrics, such as tartan used in unexpected ways, Market Street is a doorway to Edinburgh’s heart and history.


Stockholm, Sweden

A modernist landmark is reborn in Stockholm

Housed in a former warehouse in the center of Stockholm's art scene, boutique hotel Blique By Nobisis a natural hub for artists and creative travelers alike. Conceived originally by celebrated architect Sigurd Lewerentz and now gloriously reborn at the hands of Swedish starchitect Gert Wingårdh, Blique by Nobis will serve as a perfect launch pad for visitors who want to explore the city’s verdant creative scene and sample the many gastronomic restaurants, innovative bars, cutting-edge boutiques, and other cultural riches the city has to offer.
