Built in 1931, the Brite Building is El Cosmico’s annex on Highland St. in the heart of downtown Marfa.

The 3800 square foot apartment is located above the Ayn Foundation (which houses several Andy Warhol artworks) and offers an expansive retreat that is similar in spirit to El Cosmico, but with more walls.

The unit has two bedrooms with king beds and private bathrooms, as well as generous living, kitchen and dining rooms, panoramic windows and the elegant convergence of art deco and West Texas minimalist design. The Brite Building comes with all of the El Cosmico touches: free wifi, our beloved custom robes to lounge around in during your stay and other good stuff.
