The East Austin Hotel lies in the center of a thriving neighborhood hotspot at East 6th Street and Waller Street in Austin, Texas. The wood-framed hotel is organized around a courtyard and pool. Floor-to-ceiling windows in the ground-floor restaurant and the open-air rooftop bar surround guests with the energy of the street. Warm wood tones of the building’s structure are integrated into the project’s interiors. With a mixture of hotel suites and hostel/cabin designs, luxury and efficiency coexist in a space built for affordable accessibility for incoming travelers and locals alike.
Wood and concrete pavers provide a sustainable foundation for this hotel. The wood screening slats on the room balconies allow for both energy-saving shade and unimpeded views of downtown Austin. Wastewater management plans feature low-flow fixtures throughout and a large water collection tank underground. The underground parking features an accessible option for both patrons and public parking use.
