Boutique Brings Texan Flair
Rottet Studio designs Valencia Group's Texican Court
Rottet Studio is designing the retro-inspired Texican Court from Valencia Group, with an aesthetic influenced by classic Spaghetti Western films.
Set to open next month, the 152-room boutique hotel in Irving’s Las Colinas Urban Center features Spanish mission-style architecture with a layer of Texas flair. The hotel showcases three courtyards, a circular-shaped pool, a grove of trees and the Two Mules Cantina restaurant. Guests will enter through a stone and steel arch to check in at a central, white stucco building with an open-air atrium.
Public spaces are defined by three, single-story buildings reminiscent of a Mexican Hacienda built by the ranchers that settled the region. The reception area is clad with limestone and high ceilings. Those soaring surfaces are balanced out by the adjacent low and dark tequila bar, which is covered in reclaimed wood from a barn as well as sunset-colored tiles. A leather-wrapped reception desk accents the terracotta feature wall laden with succulents.
The guest buildings stand three stories and feature wood-framed verandas that overlook the courtyards. The most common room type at the hotel is a “Courts” style, which includes a living space at the entry to the courtyards. Bathrooms are accented by a barn door, and the room’s interiors incorporate natural materials. Custom furniture designed by Rottet Studio is made from raw steel and wood covered with distressed leather.
