Festival Beach Restroom in Austin

Design: Jobe Corral Architects
Location: Lady Bird Lake, Austin, Texas, USA
Festival Beach Restroom at Lady Bird Lake
Festival Beach Restroomis part of a series of restrooms along Lady Bird Lake, commissioned by The Trail Foundation and the City of Austin Parks and Recreation Department, this structure becomes more than what the program dictates.
This sculptural pavilion is a marker in the landscape, a place for shade and a unique structure that belongs to the neighborhood. A homage to its predecessor, this new restroom building uses familiar materials like concrete, steel and terra cotta tile in an unexpected way that mimics the nearby water and park trees.
A forest of columns supports two tiled waves of blue to provide much needed shelter from the sun, and ventilation to this open air building.

Hexagon View Cabin at Lake Austin
The 4,100 SF one-story ‘Hill Country contemporary’ residence sits on a 1.2-acre site on the west bank of Austin, TX. The lot had an existing house – built in the 1950’s as a vacation lake cabin – typical for the area. The original hexagon shaped cabin was renovated with an addition added in the 1970s.
