Bryce Canyon Resort is a 71 room Motel right on the edge of Bryce Canyon, Utah. In stark comparison to it's big box neighbor, Ruby's, the motel offers a more traditional family style roadside accommodation. The resort has seen better days and we are very excited to help renovate the property and have it reach its full potential.
Below are photos of each room type with a short fly through of our design solution for it.
The architectural language of the property is reminiscent of the tradition log cabin. Many of the units are stand alone.
Most rooms afford good natural light but are very outdated and in need of modernization. Every aspect of each room has been redesigned, from carpet to lighting, window treatments to bathroom tiling. All of the furniture is currently being custom built to our design specifications.
This is a teeny little unit with a very small bathroom but has great potential for one of the lower priced room products for people on a tighter budget.
A very edited color palette helps to keep the design uncomplicated and the room feeling open. We have used large scale photographs of the expansive horizons in the vicinity to populate the headboard walls and reiterate the enormity of the local landscapes.
The historic cabins were in the most disrepair....
The color palette we pulled each room scheme from was informed by the colors found in the immediate natural environment. We took photographs of the rock formations and flora and fauna in the surrounding area and extrapolated colors from the images we collected.
These rooms have very low ceilings and are paneled with knotty pine making them feel very claustrophobic. They do not currently have any closet storage which we were able to design back into the space, making the room much easier to rent.
Using full length drapes to accentuate the light source and painting the wood paneling the room suddenly feels fresh and clean. We specified a different Pendleton blanket in each scheme to be used as a luxury bed throw. These rooms boast photography of beautifully derelict roadside Americana mounted in oversized mats.
The standard double Queen room is the most requested product on the property and makes up over half of the room count.
The furniture we designed is reminiscent of mid century modern, harking back to the Heyday of 'Motel' and offering an updated yet nostalgic version for today's more demanding customer.
The current lobby feels divided into three distinct sections: reception, retail and lounge. We wanted to make the space feel more like one cohesive, inviting environment where a patron could shop, get a coffee or just hang out and use the free Wi-Fi. The lobby sports an iconic river rock faced fireplace which we left in tact, making a decorative storage space for fire logs to one side.
