GSGN_7th Street

A relic of post modern 1980's. Pink stucco, large circular aperture, bad design, all lead this building to be falling apart due to water leaks in the entry tower. We reimagined a new entry sequence that explores multiple layers of transparency, perforated stair treads, leading to a grated second floor.  The tower is now clad in a series of diagonal rod panels that all vary in the direction of the rods.  A new larger overhang at a higher level helps the users not feel so closed off on the second level balcony and enjoy views of Austin to the west.
