East Austin Hotel lies in the center of a thriving neighborhood hotspot at East 6th Street and Waller Street in Austin, Texas. The wood-framed hotel is organized around a courtyard and pool featuring wood screening slats on the room balconies allow for both energy-saving shade and unimpeded views of downtown Austin. Warm wood tones of the building’s structure are integrated into the project’s vibrant interiors. Floor-to-ceiling windows in ground floor restaurants and the open-air rooftop bar surround guests with the energy of the street. East 6th Street has developed into one of Austin's most active neighborhoods of local housing, daytime activities, and nightlife that carry a balance of both new developments and longtime small business staples. With a mixture of hotel suites and hostel/cabin designs, luxury and efficiency coexist in a space built for affordable accessibility for incoming travelers and locals alike.
