Austin 13 + 14

It is exciting to finally post these images, as they have been in my back pocket for quite some time. As mentioned previously, 2017 was filled with Austin, Texas travel; but the travel did not end at the new year. For the past 9 months, 2 other floors have come on board and the first day of business began this past Monday.

Similar to the other project, AP+I teamed up with CTA Architects and Engineers, and the results are amazing! While the images below show the DD process from our Oculus ready model, they do not compare to what it feels like walking the space.

Project Cobalt

Our challenge was to redesign the interior layout of a brand new, three story, market-ready building, slated for multiple tenants into a single tenant occupancy. Our goal was to provide our client with an design that correctly expressed the ideas and core values of the company today, while launching them into the mature company they want to become and project. Additional challenges included on-the-fly design of the partially built out core elements during the base building construction, strict acoustic requirements within the open office work environment, the acquisition of the client by a parent company halfway through the Design Development Phase, and the overlay of the parent company’s design standards with the client’s orignal intent.

Part of the solution was to devise a program that establishes a modern work environment for 150 workstations per floor in addition to introducing new amenities for the staff, such as, a full scale gym, flexible all hands and cafe for 300 employees, high tech conferencing corridor, individual wellness rooms, custom garage, and rooftop patio. Finishes were selected both for the beauty and durability utilizing wood and color in a playful locations and orientations to distinguish each floor in a subtle manner.

My role on the project varied depending on phase but included space plan layouts, schematic design sketches (front lobby and break room design), creating custom 3D models for furniture and millwork in Revit 2014, leading the construction documentation effort to submit for city and health department approval, coordinating design elements with structural and MEP engineers, weekly coordination meetings, OAC meetings, and the review of submittals and RFI’s with additional architectural sketches as needed. Truly a design for the memory books and one that I am proud to say that I helped create.
