07 AUSTIN, TEXAS CEN­TRE OF AT­TEN­TION

Identity - - PORTFOLIO -

Con­struc­tion work has started on SXSW Cen­tre, the new head­quar­ters of South by South­west, an Austin-based com­pany that pro­duces the an­nual SXSW mu­sic, film and in­ter­ac­tive fes­ti­val. The 13-storey, 26,000-square me­tre com­plex will con­sol­i­date the firm’s var­i­ous cam­puses and pro­mote creative col­lab­o­ra­tion. De­signed by Pei Cobb Freed & Part­ners, the cen­tre fea­tures a glass-clad façade which shapes a public plaza com­plete with rain gar­dens, seat­ing and pedes­trian path­ways. It is also home to a green roof with cov­ered pa­tio, re­tail and din­ing fa­cil­i­ties, along with a park­ing garage for 300 ve­hi­cles. The project is due to be com­pleted next year.
