LUXURY DESERT

HOTEL & SPA

 

site: marfa, texas

spring 2010

OBJECTIVE: To design a luxury hotel for the inhabitants of marfa, texas, a unique town full of cowboys, farmers, and minimalist artists from eastern europe. This includes hotel, restaurant, and spa, changing spaces, pools, saunas, massage, sunbathing space and reading space.

MAIN STRATEGY: Curved post-tensioned concrete walls with diamond-shaped apertures that diffuse light and minimalist rooms with a triple glass exterior ribbon window using radiant film ephemeral qualities and transitional stages engender a palimpsest exploring a metamorphic perception and management of form and space.
