Graves Dougherty Hearon & Moody

Austin, TX

Project Description

Page provided interior architecture, design and furniture services to Graves Dougherty Hearon & Moody at Frost Bank Tower. The three floors, totaling 70,650 square feet, include a conference center (with video conference capability), library, catered dining and lounge areas, attorney offices, war rooms and high density filing.

A monumental, internal stair takes full advantage of western views to the central Texas Hill Country, links shared functions and provides a visual and acoustical connection between two floors of the space. Client goals for a "light filled and open space" are achieved through the use of clerestory glass above attorney storage walls, translucent glass sidelights for perimeter and internal offices, indirect lighting, and circulation which frames exterior views. A key inspiration in the design was GDHM’s extensive art collection. Simple yet beautiful planes and surfaces of materials highlight and complement individual paintings and sculpture. Internal rooms are planned to allow GDHM to adapt support space to their needs as they grow over the years to come.
