AUSTIN TX | 130,000 SF
This 130,00SF project is a tale of a rapid-paced, budget-friendly and innovative tenant finish out for 5 different city of Austin departments: Corridor Program, Economic Development, Human Resources, Public Health, and Code Enforcement. Each of department required its own unique identity in terms of programming and aesthetic. Design was focused on security, as well as the sensitive nature of the work performed within each department. Cleverly created fresh modern spaces by expertly purchasing large quantities of cost-efficient materials and incorporating them different ways. Bright welcoming spaces were designed to welcome and serve the community, and inspiring workspaces created for the employees behind the scenes. Modern color palettes mix with drop ceiling and warm intimate lighting through the open floors. Employees can work safely in their individual high-walled cubicles and can also branch out to multiple conference rooms and a fresh mix of collaborative huddle spaces. These 2018 projects are also strong examples of departmental programming and finish out concurrent with a significant building renovation
The City of Austin Departments shine from within the newly renovation 5202 E. Ben White Blvd. Building. Former a late 1970’s semi-conductor fabrication plant, this entire building was completely transformed into a modern multi-tenant office space. Huge windows were punched into the solid brick exterior walls, and modern glass and facades were incorporated to fill the building with natural light. This modern building retains elements that celebrate its industrial heritage yet fuse with the modern aesthetic. Massive steel beams, cables and brick walls met with new skylights and expansive stretches of new windows and new glass entryways resulting in bright open spaces were created within this once dark enclosed building. Bright colors, artistic lighting, and an appealing mix of textiles and finishes bring a playful and modern feel to the interior spaces. Each department had unique functional requirements and style requests, which our team delivered while also maintaining a cohesive design look throughout the entire project.
