The Loren at Lady Bird Lake is a premier hotel and residential project at the urban thoroughfare of Riverside Drive and Lamar Boulevard in Austin, Texas. This mixed-use project features 108 luxury hotel rooms, 24 residences, an interior event space, a rooftop restaurant, and a pool. The 5-star luxe hotel is uniquely situated between nearby nature trails, parkland, and the ultimate convenience of proximity to downtown Austin. The hotel and residence programs are bridged together horizontally and split with a paseo and an open-air passage.

Durability is the defining characteristic of the project's approach to sustainability and interior design. Natural stone, timber, metals, masonry, and unfinished concrete comprise a palette of mutable and resilient materials. Weathering steel and bronze are left exposed to the elements to narrate and make evident the strength and beauty due to change and adaptation.
