Project Description

AUSTIN, TX

This high-rise office building and parking garage was designed in partnership with Kell Munoz Architects for the Texas Association of Counties (TAC). Located in downtown Austin, this 8-story office building, with 90,000 SF of occupied space is comprised of both TAC and leased office space. TAC space includes a 200-person capacity training center, an executive boardroom, commercial kitchen, law library, meeting rooms and a full-service printing facility.

The concrete structure, clad in brick and stone, and its octagonal tower at the corner entry is reminiscent in form to the historic county courthouses that TAC promotes through its services. Several important factors were key to the success of the design such as: understanding TAC’s rich history and the services it provides, organizing a complex range of functions, and working efficiently with many highly proficient teams of expertise on an aggressive timeline while maintaining a strict budget.
