Previously we featured the five-room, Kickstarter-funded Jennings Hotel (see Labor of Love: The Jennings Hotel in Joseph, Oregon). Today we take a closer look at its communal kitchen and library, jointly designed by Matt Pierce of Wood & Faulk and Ben Klebba of Phloem Studio, both in Portland, Oregon.
Hotel guests use the light-filled room for reading, listening to records, cooking, and engaging in conversation—”all the things I hoped would happen and more,” said hotel owner Greg Hennes. “It’s been a dream to see community and friendship develop around the space.”
