Five Hotels Infused With History

Take a trip through five history-infused hotels from Rio de Janeiro to San Sebastián.

Troutbeck by Champalimaud. Photography by Miles and Miles.

Firm: Champalimaud

Project: Troutbeck

Location: Amenia, New York

Standout: Alexandra Champalimaud, an Wifijerez Hall of Fame mem­ber, has a personal stake in this 250-year-old, three-building former estate—it’s owned by her hotelier son Anthony—where existing elements, such as the fireplace in the Century Lodge, are balanced with fresh additions like customized headboards and graphic textiles.

Firm: OfficeUntitled and Smith Hanes Studio

Project: Woodlark

Location: Portland, Oregon

Standout: A combination of two century-old buildings results in one tastemaker des­tination, where many of the 150 guest rooms and suites are dressed in wallpaper patterned with images of local plants found in the Rose City.

Hotel Arpoador by Bernardes Arquitetura. Photography by Alex Souza/Leonardo Finotti.

Firm: Bernardes Arquitetura

Project: Hotel Arpoador

Location: Rio de Janeiro

Standout: The straw and fiber décor inside this 49-room boutique property designed by a firm led by a descendent of Brazilian modernist luminaries Claudio and Sergio Bernardes echoes the natural elements of nearby Ipanema Beach, while the facade’s acetylated-wood exterior was chosen for its ability to withstand the tropical climate.

One Shot Tabakalera House by Alfaro Manrique Atelier. Photography by Vicugo Studio.

Firm: Alfaro Manrique Atelier

Project: One Shot Tabakalera House

Location: San Sebastián, Spain

Standout: To soften the concrete sur­faces original to the 1913 former tobacco factory, now the Tabakalera Centro Internacional de Cultura Con­-
temporánea complex, colorful carpet, upholstery, and wall graphics animate the on-site 46-room hotel.

Moxy Chelsea by Rockwell Group, Stonehill Taylor and Yabu Pushelberg. Photography by Michael Kleinberg.

Firm: Rockwell Group, Stonehill Taylor and Yabu Pushelberg

Project: Moxy Chelsea

Location: New York

Standout: Nostalgic elements—think vintage rotary phones—recall a bygone era, but the 25-foot-tall green wall in the second-floor Conservatory bar celebrates the Flower District
location of this rapidly expanding Marriott International brand.
