The Modernist Faro

The Modernist Faro

Faro is the hotbed of the South Modern Architecture movement leaded by Architect Manuel Gomes da Costa following the path of Oscar Niemeyer, Le Corbusier & Franck Lloyd Wright. The city counts about 500 buildings including “The Modernist.”

“THE MODERNIST” is a Portuguese Modern Architecture masterpiece built in the early 70s by architect Joel Santana. The use of 70s language and geometric lines have been respected in its recent upcycling. The heart and soul of the place remains faithful to its original spirit, and perfectly blends with today’s 21st-century comforts.

“THE MODERNIST” features 6 apartment-like suites of 45m2 with a private balcony or terrace, an access to the vegetal patio and the rooftop to sunbathe and enjoy panoramic views of Faro and the natural park laguna “Ria Formosa”recently elected as one of the 7 Natural Wonders of Portugal.

Each suite and outdoor space have been renovated by Portuguese award-winning Architecture studio Par in full respect of its original Mid-Century Modern Design, from the original materials (stone, wood, windows) to the most specific details like door handles, lighting, curtains and artisan made wood furniture.

Every single part of this project has been imagined, designed & manufactured in PORTUGAL and mostly from the Algarve less than 100km from site.
