Michael Hsu Office of Architecture

Commercial / 701 South Lamar

Located on a busy thoroughfare in South Austin, this office design for a development company sought to create a space of refuge and repose. Large panes of glass bring lots of light into each private office, while carefully composed interior glass walls allow sunlight to penetrate fully into the space. These windows also allow views of the trains passing by on the adjacent railroad track. Warm colored wood is used in screens and millwork to balance with the light colors and daylight in the space.
