The Atmosphere in PENSÃO AGRÍCOLA, Tavira, Portugal, by Atelier Rua

This small farmhouse, once owned by the Silva Gomes family, was built in 1920 as a wedding present to the owners’ only daughter and it remained a working farm until 1970.

After 40 years of neglect, the memories of those more prosperous times have been preserved and incorporated into the current architectural project by Atelier Rua.

Pensão Agrícola is a rural hotel with six rooms, each with a private pátio – three integrated into the original farmhouse iand three in new, contemporary modules – at the centre of the property’s one hectare of grounds.
