Wanting to increase their presence, the owner of a casino/restaurant in Billings, Montana decided to build a motel adjacent to his property. CBG Architects developed a plan that allowed for the maximum adequate sized number of rooms while keeping with parking and landscaping requirements.
A basic pattern for the parking in an "L" shaped pattern provided the most spaces laid out along with the "H" basic pattern for the rooms allowed to provide the most number of rooms. The number of parking spaces matched the number of motel rooms that would be provided. The motel also includes a drive-thru covered entry for guest convenience.
The motel layout includes sixteen guest rooms on the main floor along with a lobby area, registration, office, laundry, toilets, a meeting room and a manager's apartment. Two of the main floor guest rooms are handicap accessible as are the toilets. The second floor has 23 rooms, three of which have corner whirlpool tubs and separate showers. Four of the other rooms include standard whirlpool tubs and separate showers.
The design includes a standard concrete foundation wall construction with slab on grade. The exterior and interior walls are one-hour wood construction. The floor/ceiling between the first and second floor is 22-inch deep floor trusses of one-hour construction. The roof is cantilevered with pre-manufactured roof trusses with wood sheathing and asphalt shingles. A fire protection system is installed throughout the building.
The motel exterior is brick veneer wainscot and steel siding above the brick. Each guest room includes a sixfoot by four-foot vinyl sliding window. Each room is carpeted with ceramic tile in the bathrooms. Internet access is available with connections at the nightstand and desk. The overall rustic design intent of the motel includes 12- inch round half logs installed every 28 feet from foundation to the eave. The gable ends are also trimmed with 6-inch round half logs.
