Perry Brooks Building

I worked directly on the schematic design of the lobby renovation in the "Perry Brooks Building", an office tower downtown Austin, with tenants ranging from creative offices to law firms. The addition of a small coffee bar both provides additional revenue and begins to activate the otherwise stark, cold lobby. The limited budget did not allow for significant changes to the exterior, however the implementation of a large planter that wraps into the interior and becomes a guardrail on one side and bar counter on the other connects the lobby visually to the street, drawing people in.
