Carmody Groarke has won an RIBA Competition to build a new luxury hotel suite on Burgh Island, a 26-acre tidal island off the coast of South Devon.

The new standalone hotel suite, which will form part of a new offer for the Burgh Island Hotel, a 1930s Grade 2 Listed hotel, will offer guests an exclusive retreat set within the dramatic landscape of the existing hotel. The design of the Pool House building takes its inspiration from the natural history of the land formation, responding to the sculptural forms of the mud-stone cliffs and composing a series of interconnected rooms to form an inhabited bridge, nestling on two sides of the cliff faces, which frame views of the sea and landscape.

“This is a dream project – a luxury retreat in a breath taking coasting setting. The client deserves great credit for choosing the competition process for a relatively small private project. The winning design will create a restrained but sensuously uplifting place for guests to take delight in this stunning location,” said Jonathan McDowell, acting as the RIBA architect adviser.
