Austin’s unique heritage and identity as an artist colony, college town, governmental capital, tech hub, and live music headquarters of America has thrust it into the 21st century as a leading American center of innovation and creativity. The long history of Spanish, German, Mexican, French, and uniquely Texan cultures merged in time to establish the built community with iconic landmarks and memorable destinations. Not unlike other Texas cities, Austin, in particular, has been the epicenter of population growth and business relocation in recent years. The city has been utterly transformed, and yet the influence its legacy provides remains evident and relevant to our design approach. A fresh, high tech, clean, timeless, and contemporary approach are underpinned by the vast contextual character of the state of Texas around it.
