Communal Outpost - Marfa, Texas
Liz Lambert + Bunkhouse Management
2006 â€“ present
With the remote location and harsh climate, it can be difficult for a project as experimental as El Cosmico to find its footing. I began the actual development of the hotel by literally scratching the full-scale LAKE/FLATO site plan into the West Texas dirt. I average six extended trips out to Marfa a year and, over time, elements of the hotel have become more permanent, radiating from this first dirt sketch.
The creation of El Cosmico continues to evolve with the help of numerous local contractors, builders, and friends like Butch Anthony, John Davidson of Doe Fab Co, and Jesse Hartman of Shift Build.
El Cosmico has been open for business since 2006. Read what TASCHENâ€™S Favourite Hotels has to say about it.
