The project is a three-story building for mixed use in the revitalized corridor of 11th Street in Austin, Texas. The floor at street level is divided between a music shop and a boutique shop. The second floor is reserved for offices with residential space upstairs.
Volumetrically, shifting plates of the floors are lined with iconic areas of the city including the Texas State Capitol and UT Tower Austin. The shape and coating delamination mimic geological Central Texas landscape, which can be found in “Enchanted Rock” – the Texas version of Ayres Rock in Australia.
The result is a series of unexpected and cantilevered terraces involved with the outside. Each level has multiple balconies non-orthogonal, the vines are falling like waterfalls from these spaces on the fronts. The overhang on the second floor provides a shady respite from the intense heat of Texas in access. The flooring boards fall back to one side of the structure to mediate between the scale commercial and residential scale against the back.
