GSC Architects October 18, 2018

 

A perfect paring of modern style and historical elements downtown ATX!   GSC Architects redesigned two separate buildings for a prominent downtown Austin organization that both pay homage to the civic “court-house” architecture of the existing TAC adjacent HQ; and establish a more contemporary street presence.

Cut limestone facades combine with clean butt-glazed glass storefront systems and large punched windows to create a unique street presence for both buildings. Four sub-grade levels provide parking under the new 1204 San Antonio office building while the new 1205 Nueces building offers unique high-ceiling loft office spaces.  Both buildings also provide compelling outdoor spaces for prospective tenants, with a large shaded second floor outdoor terrace at 1204 San Antonio and a private wood front deck under heritage pecan trees at 1205 Nueces.
