Gibson Flats

The Gibson features a warm material palette of corrugated metal and weathered standing seam panels, which highlights the white steel and glas of its accompanying jewel box restaurant.

As you move away from the street, the building sinuously wraps itself between five protected Live Oak trees rooted to the site. Meanwhile, the existing topography provides a forty foot fall, allowing the building to marry itself to the landscape.

Pointe on Rio

Two exterior courtyards have been carved out of the heart of the residential levels providing light to the dwelling units and creating two distinct outdoor rooms – an active court with a pool and a quiet garden court.

The building exterior is marked by the break in convention from standard sized fixed windows. Instead, all openings are eight foot high sliding glass doors. Warmth is introduced via the rhythmic shifting of high-density composite wood panels.

Rise

Rise is located on a steep hillside at the northern edge of Austin’s flourishing high rise residential district. Due to multiple Capitol View Corridors, an adjacent national historic landmark and multiple zoning height limitations, the design team proposed essentially to illustrate these constraints using a series of distinct volumes cladded in various materials, including white stucco, corrugated weathering steel and perforated steel.

Seven Rio

Radiating through downtown Austin are thirty protected views of the historic Texas State Capitol known as Capitol View Corridors. Seven’s unique site, located along the Lamar Boulevard Bridge Capitol View Corridor, provided the opportunity to design a dynamic building defined by both its massing and use of materials.

University House Austin

The design of the building was conceived as a linearly organized residential tower set atop a low plinth that functions as a parking garage. The tower is lifted up off the plinth and set atop splaying columns providing for dynamic interior and exterior spaces that serve as the building’s amenities.

The Catherine

The Catherine features a two tone brick exterior softened by massarunduba wood siding at the balconies. The concrete skeleton is intentionally exposed in several locations and highlighted at the cantilevered roof. The unusual shape of the site posed a major design challenge for parking but allowed for the tower to take an organic form based on the surrounding views.

The Independent

For the Independent, Rhode Partners rejected the cookie-cutter feeling of identical inset balconies and window mullions typical of residential high rises for a facade inspired by Austin’s bold and dynamic spirit. The movement between the building’s tiers represents life and action, an outward reflection of the lifestyle the team is creating in the interior of the building as well as with the surrounding community.
