A Look Inside Moreland Properties’ New Austin Office
Premier brokerage firm Morealnd Properties hired architecture and interior design studio Britt Design Group to design their new office in Austin, Texas.
“Britt Design Group’s mission was to provide Moreland Properties with functional and flexible areas where meetings can be held privately or opened up for large events and group gatherings. Flexibility in the design and layout were essential. The state-of-the-art conference room flows directly into the entry lounge and a collaborative library space, designed for showcasing Moreland Properties’ finish materials and floorplans.
“The goal for the Moreland Properties office was to evoke the feeling of a luxury hotel or residence, matching the aesthetic of the properties they represent. Every interaction had to be seamless. The space is equally welcoming for a casual daytime coffee or an elegant evening soiree,” says Laura Britt, founding principal, Britt Design Group.
Design highlights include a dramatic dual height shelving installation and illuminated textile ropes, strikingly seen from any angle of 2nd Street and Congress. A focal point in the lounge area and lobby entrance, the sky-high bookcases showcase one-of-a-kind collectibles, locally found objects, and curated art pieces. The unique lighting statement of both elements create dramatic impact, especially at night.
The hospitality and kitchen area open directly to the downstairs workstations to encourage office interaction. The large-scaled light fixtures, made of recycled plastic bottles, absorb any surrounding noise and enhance the acoustics of the open space. Local photography filled restrooms also evoke an Austic-centric personality above unique free standing storage pieces, clad in shagreen and leather.”
