A contemporary and cost effective design met the Owner’s goals for a banking and commercial office building on a tight, urban site in downtown Austin, Texas. The site constraints necessitated an efficient site plan, placing the structure at the southeast corner of the site, with the balance of real estate allocated to parking and circulation. The bank lobby and offices are located on the first floor and the second floor is leased to commercial tenants. Dominating the building’s western exposure is a continuous perforated metal sun-shade that completely shades the windows from the harsh sun. Internal spaces are bright, modest and reflect reliance on natural light, simple and inexpensive finishes.
