Champalimaud Design achieves further shortlist success in the International Hotel & Property Awards 2014

Champalimaud Design‘s Topping Rose House has been successfully shortlisted for the Hotel Suite Award in the International Hotel & Property Awards 2014. The project will also compete for the Hotel under 50 Rooms Award.


Eight years in the making, Topping Rose House is eclectic, classic and clean, maintaining a strong sense of the natural beauty and sophistication akin to the Hamptons. The design provides a sense of place.  The collection of well scaled pieces reflects a more residential feeling.  There is a sense of comfort about the interiors, making one feel at ease in the space.


The suites are adorned with Tolomeo bedside sconces and custom-designed iron chests.  Within the cottage suites, beds are crafted from reclaimed wood with custom upholstered headboards.  Colour and pattern are used to create bold accents.  Lime green and blue Madeline Weinrib rugs complement graphic pillows from John Robshaw Textiles. Black Windsor chairs pair with mid-century tables, befitting the inn’s origin with a contemporary look and feel.


The historic 1842 estate has been transformed into a luxurious destination inn.  The property features an acclaimed restaurant and bar, 22 bespoke guest rooms and amenities including a wellness centre.  Guest accommodations include luxury suites that have been configured within the historic mansion, twelve new guest cottages and three modern studios within a contemporary addition.  A refurbished 19th century barn serves as a studio for private events.
