The Plainstay Motel

The main goal of this project is to relocate the Flint Hills Visitor’s Center from the Spring Hill Mansion, in the center of the preserve, to the southeastern edge. This building will stand as a connective device as well as a commentary on the traditional motel typology, responding to its context along route 50 and its proximity to the nearby trail that connects Cottonwood Falls to Strong City, which then merges with the existing trails within the preserve. The Plainstay Motel is a modest, clean and simple place to stay in the center of everything that makes the Flint Hills great.
