Gensler Austin at Music Lane

Austin, Texas

Inspired by years of research into the employee experience and hospitality design concepts, Gensler Austin’s office in Music Lane offers a view into the modern workplace.

The 24,000-square-foot workspace is designed as a “living lab” of best-in-class workplace trends and features an open office layout on two floors with multiple configurations for collaborative or private work, including three outdoor terraces. A skylight fills the space with natural light, reducing electricity consumption and creating another connection to the outdoors. This design approach is drawn directly from Gensler’s latest workplace research, which finds that employees thrive best in mostly open environments that provide ample opportunities for working in teams and socializing, along with quieter areas to focus or recharge.
