A grand staircase at the center of the lobby offers views of the city’s skyline and seamlessly connects the two-level conferencing center. Conference rooms are pulled back from the windows, creating a gallery hall that offers more dramatic views of the city and serves as an event space connected to a rooftop terrace. A hospitality lounge provides casual client breakout space with sofas, lounge chairs, serving bars, a coffee bar and an open café.
Each floor is arranged to maximize efficiency while offering special features. Designers coordinated overhead equipment to maximize ceiling heights and open areas. Vertical wood elements increase the volumetric feeling of the space, which is enhanced by natural light flowing through the expansive glass, high ceilings and office sidelights.
A refined palette of neutral whites and grays offsets the firm’s collection of colorful artwork, with yellow used as an accent color, symbolizing the warm Texas sun.
