Yeti, an Austin-based producer of premium outdoor gear, chose Gensler as design partner to create their first global headquarters. Inspired by the brand missives, the design team crafted a work home as earthy and real as Yeti. The campus features plain honest materials and outdoor hues, and includes a fire pit, an outdoor band stage/workplace, a brew house, and absolutely nothing that feels “corporate.” Hand-tooled leather, raw steel, recycled inner tubes, and worn denim materials help evoke the brand lifestyle throughout the interior. Gensler’s work also includes plans for a grizzly bear-friendly suspension bridge to connect Yeti’s two buildings above their open air terrace. As welcoming and quirky as Austin and in earthy harmony with the Hill Country, Yeti’s new home celebrates its hometown hero status.
