Top Interior Designers | Champalimaud Design

Champalimaud Design is known for creating some of the most renowned hotels and restaurants in the world. Today Miami Design Agenda would like to tell you more about them and their style in design.

Biography: the woman before the myth


Alexandra Champalimaud is the Founder, President and Principal Designer at Champalimaud. What is more, she is a full service interior design and interior planning firm specializing in bespoke, high-end hospitality and residential design

Alexandra Champalimaud was born and raised in Portugal. She received her early education in Switzerland and England. After that the designer completed her design training at the Espirito Santo Foundation in Lisbon, Portugal which is one of the worlds’ last remaining colleges teaching the tradition of European arts, crafts and techniques of historic preservation and restoration.

Nearly 30 years ago, Alexandra Champalimaud & Associates was founded and quickly developed a strong following among Montreal tastemakers. As the company expanded, Alexandra decided to relocate to New York City in 1994 to serve a thriving international client base, and changed its name to Champalimaud in 2008. Since its inception, the firm has been privileged to partner with many landmark hotels and residences globally.

Backgroung & Realizations

Alexandra brings a dynamic intellectual curiosity and an absence of pretense to her work. Drawing upon a wealth of personal experiences and professional commissions throughout Europe, Africa, Asia and South America, her work is known for subtle references unique to her multi-faceted vantage point. With a unique talent for the application of color, pattern, texture and a seasoned understanding of the foundations and principals of classic design, Alexandra remains an uncompromising aesthetic respectful of the needs of her clients and the time place and cultural context of each project. Her New York-based firm Champalimaud is highly regarded for its residential and hospitality interiors work. The owner is grace and innovation personified.

The Most Iconic Projects

There are three projects that come to mind as the most iconic projects. Alexandra Champalimaud and her team created in Taos, NM; a cool office space in New York City, which was just completed the renovations at the Hotel Bel Air in Los Angeles.

Right now the firm is working on a particularly wonderful place—the highest of high-end residential that’s extremely sexy, on the top of the peak in Hong Kong. After that they have a wonderful residential property on the water in Miami, the lobby of which is really fun. It’s very modern, however, it has an enormous soul and speaks to the enduring relevance of those great, original art deco Miami buildings.


The third great project is a beautiful private boutique hotel project in Nassau, on top of a hill. It feels like a contemporary, modern plantation. Meanwhile, in Bath in the U.K.,a 19th-century hospital is converted into the Gainsborough Bath Spa hotel with reclaimed Roman ruins. It features a one-of-a kind spa with therapeutic pools and singular access to the local healing mineral waters.

There were also finished a few residences—one on Park Avenue, another beautiful, turn-of-the-century house in Denver, an incredible from-scratch hybrid club-hotel on West 44thStreet in New York, the lobby of the Verizon building on the west side of Manhattan, and renovations to the public spaces in the New York Palace hotel.


All in all, the volume of work that a Champalimaud Design is doing every year is incredible in terms of everything. Follow our blog and you will get to know about more interior designers.
