Champalimaud’s flourishing practice has her taking on hospitality projects that range aesthetically and geographically. The Island House in western Nassau, Bahamas, opened in April as a boutique hotel that she describes as “informal, seductive, and welcoming.” It has an innovative spa, a 48-seat movie theater, and an outdoor Asian-inspired restaurant that serves the 38 guest rooms, apartments, and cottages. She gave it the feel of an airy house, with a stylishly furnished living room and work by local artists. In the UNESCO World Heritage city of Bath, England, Champalimaud converted a 19th-century hospital—recently home of the Bath School of Art & Design—into a sybaritic hotel, with a spa and pool where guests can enjoy the geothermal hot springs that once drew Roman centurions and now contemporary travelers. As Champalimaud observes, “It’s easy to create beauty with water.” Marble bathrooms, inlaid burl-wood wardrobes, and dramatic draperies framing tall windows are features of the 99 guest rooms. The honey-toned limestone, from which Bath’s rich legacy of classical buildings is made, inspired her sensitive adaptation. The hotel is named the Gainsborough Bath Spa, after the illustrious 18th-century painter Thomas Gainsborough, who was a resident of Bath.
