Multifamily Amenities

Austin, Texas

Completed 2023

Interiors by Michelle Thomas Design

This student apartment building near the University of Texas at Austin originally featured a large open plaza on top of its parking garage that remained relatively unoccupied, especially in the warm months. By adding a series of shade pavilions around the space, we injected life and activity into the space. Flanking trellises house game areas and seating, while the central planter was re-purposed as a spacious yoga lawn. The axis of the plaza terminates in a large covered lounge area with TVs for movies and gameday parties, supported by a covered barbecue grill area. On the opposite end, we converted an apartment into an air-conditioned lounge with study spaces and a small café.
