Fifth + Tillery

Austin, Texas

Reviving a post-industrial site in East Austin, Fifth + Tillery reimagines a large warehouse footprint as a vibrant indoor-outdoor creative office building. Marking the transition from a lush neighborhood to an industrial district, the design concept for the building infuses its industrial surroundings with vibrant green spaces.

Fifth + Tillery reimagines the potential of the modern workplace. Its palette was kept intentionally utilitarian and natural, with a hybrid timber structural system complementing the warmth and beauty of the verdant landscape dispersed throughout the space. Focusing on sustainability and wellbeing, Fifth + Tillery features a canopy of solar panels to power the office building and a water runnel to collect rainwater for irrigation. The seamless integration of nature throughout draws users into common spaces, creating a dynamic social environment that encourages chance connections and spontaneous collaboration.
