Travel by Design - Benessee House

Welcome to the newest feature on my blog, Travel by Design! Travel is a passion of mine, as is design and nothing makes me more excited then when the two come together.  Each week I will be bringing you amazing hotels, resorts, and vacation getaways where design is a key element in the concept.  The first Travel by Design hotel is Benessee House.  

Benessee House is part art museum, part hotel...literally.  Tadao Ando, renowned architect, designed the grounds, which house artist's permanent exhibitions, designed specifically for the hotel.  The main concept of Benessee House is to blend nature, art, and architecture.
