BOKA Powell firm designs new Hillwood office building at Alliance
Architecture firm BOKA Powell is designing Hillwood Development Co.’s speculative office building at its Alliance development.
It’s expected to be completed in mid-2014.
The building will feature a dramatic entrance with floor-to-ceiling windows, said BOKA Powell, which has offices in Fort Worth and Dallas.
“Our modern design has a regional Hill Country flair, with locally sourced stone and steel materials and a color palette that reflects the indigenous landscape,” said Courtney Richardson, lead designer with BOKA Powell, in a statement.
“Huge canopies bracket the entry way, creating an iconic grand porch that will glow at night,” she said.
The building includes two wings of 25,000 square feet for each of the three stories, with the lobby tucked in the center.
The building will include a number of green design elements, including the use of locally-sourced materials, low-emissivity “low-e” coated glass, taller window heights that bring in natural light.
BOKA Powell is providing master planning, architectural design and interior design services for the new building. Rogers-O’Brien Construction is the general contractor.
