PeopleFund Corporate Offices

Austin, TX

This two-story building serves as the corporate offices for PeopleFund, a non-profit organization that promotes economic opportunity, stability and justice in under-served communities throughout Central Texas. The first floor contains PeopleFund’s offices, and the second floor will provide expansion and community activity spaces. As part of a three-building “campus” of non-profit businesses, the facility occupies a larger tract of land adjacent to the MLK Blvd. lightrail station currently under construction.

The project is designed to meet the criteria of a LEED Certified Building. Exterior materials include board formed tilt-up concrete panel side walls, cement panel siding, metal roofing to harvest rain water and aluminum and glass window systems. The south facade faces a shared landscaped courtyard, and the large cantilever provides shade for the first level window wall as well as a covered gathering area for inclement weather. Lawrence Group provided complete architectural services from schematic design through construction.
