This month we head to Portugal for a Destination Design that lands us by the Tagus River in Eastern Lisbon to a hotel that’s all about business and pleasure. Designed by architect Nuno Leónidas, the Myriad by SANA Hotels boasts 186 rooms featuring bright, bold colors and to-die-for views of the Tagus estuary. The “futuristic oasis” stands over 143 meters (or 469 feet) tall, making way for a massive vertical transparent atrium in the center of the hotel that provides a light-filled interior. Let’s take a tour of this glimpse of the future…

The interiors were designed by Teresa Leónidas, who brought in modern touches and the bold pops of color you’ll spot throughout.

The wide open space of the atrium allows for some unusual lighting to be installed. Jellyfish-like chandeliers remind the guests of being by the water.
