The 135-room Mountain Modern Motel of Jackson, WY reinvents the typical motel concept with an innovative approach to hospitality tailored to adventure travelers. Jackson-based Crystal Creek Capital hired TruexCullins to transform a former motor inn, creating an entirely new guest experience with a distinctly contemporary and functional design.
The guest rooms are inspired by the tiny-homes movement, with a custom storage wall to accommodate outdoor gear and vanities with durable counters for washing coolers and backpacks. Buffalo-plaid blankets, leather chairs, and oversize trail maps establish a timeless design scheme and reference the natural features of the Grand Teton backcountry.
The lobby offers more shared and communal spaces than a typical motel building, with food & beverage areas, a breakfast room, café, and fireplace with lounge seating. The lobby décor consists of outdoor gear available for daily rental, so that the lobby doubles as an outdoor gear outfitter for guests.Photography: Ryan Sheets
