Sacromonte | Uruguay

The website says “opening soon”, but Wallpaper* Magazine already ravishes about Sacromonte, a new hotel and (existing?) winery north of Punta del Este, Uruguay.

Checking all the right boxes of modern escapism is this millennial getaway set in the wild sierras of Maldonado, about 30 clicks north of Uruguay’s Punta del Este and José Ignacio. The Brazilian and Uruguayan studio MAPA Architects have gently inserted 13 spacious cabins – prefabbed in Montevideo and assembled on-site with minimal disruption to the natural terrain – into a hundred hectares of grasslands, spring-water reservoirs, and vineyards.

The entire front of each cabin is sheathed in one-way mirror glass which creates a simple but effective camouflage against the setting, whilst providing the interiors, which are lined with cool dark stone and oak wall panels, with uninterrupted views.

And set on a hilltop is a farm-to-table restaurant that serves barbecued lamb, veal and wild boar.
