OUR STORY

A BELA AURORA is a private residence built around 1870 in the historical centre of Porto. The people who built it left their mark on this beautiful townhouse with their sense of beauty and style, and their great sensitivity to form.

This arts and crafts building is a peaceful home away from home. Our desire was to create an atmosphere where aesthetics and functionality embraced quietness and a discrete elegance, respecting the organics of the building.

Transforming the house into a home and a guesthouse was a beautiful experience, a privilege and a very gratifying process.

Retaining the personality and the unique character of the building and leaving the structure untouched, we adjusted the existing form to the needs of modern life and the requirements of contemporary travellers of all ages.

This has been accomplished through a delicate and intensely creative collaborative project involving the architect Tiago Oudman (from Studio Kunchi), the interior design by Paula (photographer/artist) and the supporting spirit of Massimo (journalist/musician).

Not forgetting the skill of the wonderful team of artisans who put our ideas into practice and all our supporting friends.
