Fairmont Austin

Austin, Texas

Client: Fairmont Hotels & Resorts
Architect: Gensler
Landscape Architect: DWG
Interior Designer: Warren Sheets
Completion: 2018

Located within Austin’s Central Business District, this new 37-story, 1.4 million square foot, luxury hotel offers picturesque views of Lady Bird Lake, the Austin cityscape and the Texas State Capitol. The hotel features 1,048 guest rooms, five restaurants and bars, an outdoor pool, a fitness center, a full service spa and nearly 140,000 square feet of event space. Adjacent to the Convention Center, the hotel offers direct access via the Red River Canopy Walk.

The Fairmont Austin’s distinctive, softly glowing top and brightly illuminated 150-foot tall spire have become an immediate landmark after dark. Seemingly random, illuminated vertical strips in the precast podium and glass crown evoke a playful piano recital.
