Office renovation within the university's historic main building in Austin, Texas
Set within the campus' historic main building, the Marketing Department is the authority on St. Edward's University's overall aesthetic and its public persona. Designed to facilitate open communication, the 5,500 sf space includes custom staff workstations, private offices, a meeting room and an inviting waiting area. For the entryway, Specht Harpman designed a wall made up of no. 2 pencils that symbolizes the creative process of the writers and designers in the department who create all the University's printed materials, from fundraising brochures to course catalogs.
