With the remote location and harsh climate, it can be difficult for a project as experimental as El Cosmico to find its footing. We began the actual development of the hotel by literally etching the full-scale LAKE/FLATO site plan into the West Texas dirt. Jack averaged six extended trips out to Marfa a year, and, over time, elements of the hotel have become more permanent, radiating from this first dirt sketch.
The creation of El Cosmico continued to evolve with the help of numerous local contractors, builders and friends, like Butch Anthony, John Davidson of Doe Fab Co. and Jesse Hartman of Shift Build. And it continues today.
El Cosmico has been open for business since 2006. www.elcosmico.com
