Research & History

Downtown Austin
Downtown Austin

Most of the city of Austin, TX was built between 1900’s-1930’s, right when the roaring 20’s started after the Great War had ended, therefore the first standing building were dominantly inspired by the Art Deco movement happening in America. After these first buildings were made, the rest of the city was basing their ideas off these historic landmarks in they’re area which caused the ripple of Art Deco in Austin to begin.

The Scarbrough

The Scarbrough building was built in 1909 by the James Black construction Company which happened to be Austin’s very first tower. Although you can see that this building was very much influenced by an Art Deco design, this was actually created before Art Deco really made waves through the United states. I really love the use of the black marble with gold platting on the walls that can influence my overall design in my lobby as well.

The Bohn House

In 1938 the Bohn House on 1301 West 29th street was built by the owner Herbert Bohn with the help of professional architect Roy L. Thomas. I’m really influenced by the curvilinear lines overall with the windows and structure. The builders themselves were also inspired by the film “Lost Horizon” and looks of Shangri-La.
