Thunderbird Hotel
601 W San Antonio St, Marfa, TX 79843

A haven for “culture tourists” in the west Texas town of Marfa, the Thunderbird Hotel juxtaposes contemporary design with Western touches. Built in 1959 as a classic horseshoe-shaped, single-story roadside motel, the 24-room structure was gutted and rebuilt to reflect a modern, minimalist aesthetic by Lake | Flato Architects. Each room opens onto the vine-covered breezeway that surrounds the courtyard. Low stucco walls and a live ocotillo fence create a private oasis around the pool, which reflects the vast sky above. Stands of native plants and cacti anchor the hotel in its environment, and a latticework of salvaged oil-field piping shades the breezeways and poolside lounge with orange honeysuckle vines. An outdoor lounge with a fireplace for cold desert nights completes the complex.
