100 Year-old Building
Downtown Austin, TX
As the world’s largest PR firm, Edelman required a dynamic and progressive design for their Austin office. Fitting into the top floor of an existing building on Congress Avenue, the plan is laid out to provide for an open flow of ideas, personal space for concentration, and effortless group interaction. The space is bookended by group workspaces and a lounge area, which features a pair of tables on rollers, custom-designed by DC+A to provide the ultimate in flexibility: separately, they are layout space; together, they are a ping pong table. The masonry party walls, exposed wood trusses, refinished wood floors, and roof deck along Congress Avenue provide an aesthetic that is clearly Austin and sets these offices apart from their counterparts around the globe.
