Located just south of Austin’s Lady Bird Lake, this office tower thoughtfully responds to its constraints to transform an underutilized, triangular site into a sustainable standard for adjacent future development. The design team demonstrated a commitment to environmental responsibility, from treating and storing all stormwater on site to drastically increasing biodiversity and the urban forest. All condensate and roof rain water is captured for reuse in irrigation, allowing for a roof garden that provides social and solitary spaces set within a lush, woodland-inspired oasis. The terrace’s diverse planting, investment in shade trees, warm material palette, and emphasis on detail create an alluring refuge from the urban environment. Certified LEED Gold, the site’s redevelopment represents a major contribution to the social, environmental, and economic health of not only the parcel itself but to the district as a whole.
