Concrete and steel structure for Texas office
Texas-based Cushing Terrell has designed the Cushing Terrell ATX Office, which was to create space for a growing, multidisciplinary team.
The Texas State Teacher’s Association building was chosen to house the firm’s new office location. A 13,000 sq. ft. space, the project challenged the firm’s architects, interior designers, and engineers to join forces and build their own space.
The 3D program Matterport was employed to document existing features and build models, so the team could experience the space before design. Ensuring the office and its amenities would meet staff needs, the floor plan includes comfortable workstations, collaboration areas, and conference rooms with flexibility to accommodate future growth.
The juxtaposition of the concrete structure on the west side of the building with the new steel structure on the east side creates a unique charm. Spectacular views spanning the Capitol building and surrounding downtown area are accessible from the rooftop deck and an east-facing interior area, titled the “front porch”. From the lighting elements to the communal design lab that functions as a central hub, every detail in this space is designed with intention.
