What is your concept?

October 23, 2011

In the Austin office we’ve been discussing the design concept. Do we have one, do we start with one, do we end with one, how is it evident in our projects.

To be inspired about what a concept can do for your project, during your next lunch break, watch the 18 minute video by TED featuring Bjarke Ingles.

Jones Energy

October 21, 2011

The STG Design interiors team of Martha, Angela, Alex, Wendy, Shawn and Lauren recently finished an efficient and dynamic space for Jones Energy in Austin. Jones Energy is a privately held natural gas exploration and production company. The overall space is 26,585 sf.

The front reception has a glass drop from the ceiling as well as artwork made entirely of chain link to look like ripples from a drop. The space has glass partitions for the outer edge offices and interior conference rooms to let in lots of light. The breakroom also has wonderful drop shaped lights hanging over the dining island.

At STG Design, we’re lucky to have a great group of creative types. Taking your knowledge and sharing with our community of clients, partners and the larger design world is a great way to spread STG Design brand. We’re going to be talking about  how to take your knowledge out to a wider circle in the coming weeks.

Sally Chavez, an interior designer from our Tucson office did a wonderful example of that recently. She wrote an article about Office Trends and how companies are changing the thought of the traditional office space. We’re lucky to have it begin to be published in the design community.

Like to write? We’d love to have you on the blog or develop an article. Great content that our clients can find valuable or establish STG Design as a thought leader can go a long way to creating the “Raving Fans.”

The Incredible Shrinking Office Space – Fact or Fantasy?

October 5, 2011

Great article from ULI’s Urban Land on how the demand for office space, changes in workforce and culture are changing how offices are designed.

The current office market recovery is being led by energy, technology, and financial services—but shifts in how people work could mean that some sectors of the office market will never recover.

STG Design Team Wins Best Construction in rEvolution Runway Show

September 28, 2011

Last Friday night at Arthouse was the first annual IIDA rEvolution Runway. The fashion show featured twelve models from firms around town that showcased garments created of 40% recylced material and 40% product provided by a manufacturer. The recylced content was gathered at ZeroLandfill and the teams had only four short weeks to complete an outfit.

The runway show was a celebration of the success of ZeroLandfill, which diverted over 12,000 pounds of material from the landfill, and also benifitted Tips on Art and TAID.

The STG Design team included Kandice, Andrea H., Holly, Lauren, Denisse, Whitney, Bianca, and Ariel. The team won Best Contruction!

SW YMCA – Fun in the Sun

September 13, 2011
STG Design completed the renovation of the Southwest YMCA’s existing facility to better serve the increasing demands of South Austin. The concept was to express a transition from urban to garden, symbolizing the every day progression from work, to fitness, to life. This concept is expressed in the architecture by progressively dissolving the mass of the existing tilt-wall façade with a multi-colored perforated screen.

The play of light from the screen is more pronounced as one approaches the east side or “Garden,” much like the dappling of light of the sky through the canopy of a tree. The facility includes a basketball court, indoor pool, aerobics area, pilates area, free weights, cardio, spinning, indoor walking track, outdoor pool and outdoor play area.
