Opening Of Lakeline Station Apartments

We are honored to have been the architects for the Lakeline Station Apartments, which just celebrated its Grand Opening on April 19th. Thanks to this new living community, families who have struggled to find affordable housing in Austin now have a safe, beautiful, and supportive place to call home.

 

 

 

With all 128 units fully leased, Lakeline Station is off to a successful start! This affordable housing development was built with sustainable green building practices in mind, particularly at the on-site Michael & Susan Dell Foundation Learning Center. The Learning Center will be the first “net zero” commercial building in Austin, ultimately producing more energy than it consumes.  Additionally, surrounding the building are metal cisterns which store rainwater harvested from the roof and a landscape which includes edible plants such as a loquat grove, sunflowers, and veggies planted in raised gardening beds for the children.

 

 

 

In keeping with the inspired mission of our client, Foundation Communities, the space will host after-school and summer learning programs for children as  well as “English as a second language” classes. For adults, the Learning Center will also provide financial coaching, exercise and nutrition classes, and help with health insurance enrollment.

Contractor:  B.E.C. Austin General Contractors

Landscape Architecture:  Studio Balcones

MEP Engineering:  Aptus Engineering

As more and more people continue to re-locate to Austin, we are seeing a steady increase in the number of residential projects we are doing here at h+uo. This includes everything from single-family homes, ADU’s, duplexes, whole-house remodels, and additions. We expect this trend to continue as U.S. News and World Report recently named Austin the best place to live in America.

 

 

 

 

Here is one of our latest residential projects to be completed.  Located in the revitalized Chestnut Neighborhood on the east side of town, this speculative home sold in just a few weeks.   To see more of our featured residential projects, please visit our website HERE.

Every year, the AIA Board President has the opportunity to recognize an individual that supports the mission of AIA Austin.

 

This year, President Jim Susman, gave the award to David Carroll, AIA. “This award is in recognition of David’s steadfast and heartfelt commitment to our Chapter, specifically with respect to advocacy and urban design issues.”

 

AIA grants the honor for making a special contribution to the design and construction community, supporting the members, and going above and beyond the requirements of the employment or volunteer position.

h+uo architects recently completed another fun amenity building in the second phase of The Groves neighborhood in North Houston.  We designed a “Fish Camp” where residents and their guests can have the experience of fishing from a small pond right in their neighborhood.  More amenities, including the first pool, are being designed for the upcoming third phase of this 993 acre master planned community.
