A Look Inside Britt Design Group’s New Austin Office
“The idea behind WELL Design is an overview of the office occupants and how we occupy and use the space,” says Laura Britt, founding Principal Britt Design Group. In designing the new office space, the team used technological integration of both AV and lighting systems allowing for maximum flexibility of the space. Various sizes and types of working and meeting areas support a wide range of activities and provide an opportunity for movement between spaces throughout the workday and a Wellness Room provides a quiet respite. “Large windows provide the staff connection to the outdoors and sunlight controlled by an internal shading system. Live indoor plants support biophilic connection and air purification, and furnished outdoor spaces encourages work or breaks with the benefits of sunshine and fresh air,” says Britt Design Group.
“This recently completed office building also exemplifies WELL build and design. Bringing natural light into in the two-story building was one of the most important elements. Views are framed by large windows from two opposite sides allowing the users to experience the busy streetscape (front) and the quite solitude of backyard landscape (back). “The main lobby is the primary entry for interaction between offices… the backyard landscape is the same concept. “To present areas of social interaction is key to a lot of our work. The building was intended to have a single user per floor so that the users could experience the continuous run of window from all angles of the building,” says Mark Odom Studio.
