Nelsen Partners developed and revitalized an old East Austin warehouse into one-of-a-kind neighborhood event space. All while preserving most of the façade elements, Nelsen Partners' conversion included a unique hand-cranked pivoting picture window on the west wing that opens the hall to the landscape, allowing the maximization of natural light in the interiors. The warehouse's interiors are unified by a large open concrete floor that connects all corridors and bays. In order to retain the industrial aesthetic, all structural components of the building were left exposed. A Hangar Warehouse and Courtyard intervention were the final additions to make this venue completely programmable, freeing spaces that will become expression areas with great flexibility for the eastside community.
Once a German beer Distribution Center, now an indoor/outdoor event space that reflects the true spirit of the city.
