  • Austin is quickly growing as the digital media hub of the south, this project is a Digital Media Conference Center located in downtown and includes retail, a hotel, fitness center, and bike hub.
  • Between 5th and 6th streets, major east-west thorough fares connecting downtown, and next to Shoal Creek, a hike and bike trail following the natural creek passing north-south through Austin, this project was sited in prominent juncture that had to address pedestrian, cycling and vehicular traffic.
  • According to the City of Austin's Shoal Creek Masterplan, Shoal Creek would serve as a green belt to link a series parks including Pease Park and Duncan Park. Rather than following the typical downtown building block typology of pushing as much store-frontage as possible to the street, this project sought to set these buildings in a park, to give a plaza and open green mall back to the pedestrians of the area. Additionally, a sunken plaza gives users direct access from the trail to the fitness center below the hotel.
