Plans unveiled for cliffside hotel suite on Devon’s Burgh Island

Architecture firm Carmody Groarke has announced it has won a Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) competition to design a standalone hotel suite on Burgh Island.

The new development will form part of a new offer for the grade II-listed Burgh Island hotel, which will offer guests an exclusive retreat set and stand as a ‘contemporary’ contrast to the island’s Art Deco hotel.

The luxury suite will bridge between two separate cliff faces and is inspired by the land formation of the island’s soft mud-stone. It will feature a series of interconnected rooms and include dramatic views of the island and sea.

Jonathan McDowell, an advisor for RIBA, said: “This is a dream project – a luxury retreat in a breath-taking coastal setting.

“The client deserves great credit for choosing the competition process for a relatively small private project and has been rewarded with an intriguing variety of schemes from the shortlisted teams, selected from a strong long list of both established and emerging practices.”
