Twin Rocks Bed & Breakfast

Bluff, Utah

After Remodeling the Twin Rocks Café, we were approach by a private landowner to create a Master Plan  and Art Colony with several specific component parts. The first element would be a specific small,” boutique” B & B which would be supported by the restaurant we had just completed. The expansiveness of the exterior landscape called for an intimate courtyard with a tie to the exterior through the sky and two wall apertures.

Like the Twin Rocks, we established twin walls, but horizontally . Both walls would be solid except for the two major rolling doors. Our exploration of materials for rammed earth. Corten steel to stone of the area allowed the clients to decide which was more in keeping with the brand they wanted to portray.

The interior courtyard would have a firepit, water element and tree for a appropriate tie to the exterior spaces and a spectacular evening view of the stars just walking to your room.  We turned to Cove Fort, an historical site, near Capital Reef as a point of departure for our approach.  The fort was built in 1847 to offer protection and refreshment to the traveler.
