The latest project designed by Bunkhouse Group and Lake Flato architecture studio, in Austin, is called Magdalena Hotel. The distribution of its four new buildings, connected by courtyards and exterior corridors, occupy the original location of the Terrace Motor Hotel from the 1950s and the premises of the legendary musician Willie Nelson from the 1970s, Austin Opry House.
The hotel combines ‘70s culture, vintage spirit and works by local artists in every corner. The furniture at the same time, draws from its history. The main lobby combines designer pieces from well-known brands with timber wood in abundance and, although the references are many, the result is a warm and intimate space, not presumptuous at all.
