Jackson Hole inspires TruexCullins-designed Mountain Modern Motel

Burlington, Vermont-based architecture firm TruexCullins designed the 135-room lodge with an aesthetic anchored in the property’s location.

In Jackson Hole, Wyo., Burlington, Vt.-based architecture firm TruexCullins designed the 135-room Mountain Modern Motel with an aesthetic anchored in the property’s location.

The lobby and guestroom merge Wild West elements with functional design.

The guestrooms were specifically inspired by the "tiny-homes movement," with custom-built shelving units for outdoor gear and counter space for backpacks and coolers. There are also buffalo-plaid blankets, leather chairs and natural wood furnishings. Landscape photography and oversize trail maps serve as guestroom wallcoverings, evoking a sense of place.
