901 East Sixth

901E6 will be the first building in Austin to use CLT (Cross-Laminated Timber) as a structural component.  The 5-story 125,000sf office building is a hybrid structure with an exposed steel frame and CLT floor decks.  The steel is used to achieve long spans from core to perimeter,  eliminating columns within the open office space. The raw wood/steel interior, reminiscent of early 20th century warehouses, is complimented by an exterior cladding of tapered mild steel that will patina over time.  The lobby is conceived as an extension of the street with a large bi-fold door at the entrance while wrap-around balconies on the second level and operable windows encourage a lively street-facing facade.
