WELL Build and Design office space

Mark Odom Studio as Architects

Austin’s Britt Design Group and architects at Mark Odom Studio create a WELL Build and Design office space. 

Prominent Austin firm Britt Design Group envisions its very own WELL Office Space – providing health and wellness in the office.

Britt Design Group (behind some of Texas’ biggest commercial and multi-family projects including Austin PBS, Indeed Tower, Four Season’s Residences, in addition to high-end luxury home design) is known for uniquely integrating architectural and interior design solutions with a forward focus on creating thoughtful transformative spaces with attention to WELL building and design. 

 

Helmed by industry veteran and founder, Laura Britt, Britt Design Group debuts its brand-new office space – a stunning new 3,300 square foot creative office space specifically designed with a health and WELL focus -- an area the firm has a strong foothold in. Britt Design Group’s new office serves as a working example of WELL Building concepts. “The primary goal with Britt Design Group’s new office is to showcase and educate clients and colleagues about incorporating the WELL Building Standard into their projects,” says Laura Britt, Founding Principal, Britt Design Group.  

Britt Design Group’s office exemplifies WELL build and design – which addresses the overall well-being of the building’s occupants. In designing the new office space, the team used technological integration of both AV and lighting systems allowing for maximum flexibility of the space. Various sizes and types of working and meeting areas support a wide range of activities and provide an opportunity for movement between spaces throughout the workday and a Wellness Room provides a quiet respite for relaxing, meditation, nursing mothers. Large windows provide the staff connection to the outdoors and sunlight controlled by an internal shading system.  Live indoor plants support biophilic connection and air purification, and furnished outdoor spaces encourages work or breaks with the benefits of sunshine and fresh air.

 

The office is part of a recently completed office building, designed by architecture firm Mark Odom Studio (Bumble HQ and Torchy’s Tacos). Bringing natural light into in the two-story building was one of the most important elements.  Views are framed by large windows from two opposite sides allowing the users to experience the busy streetscape (front) and the quite solitude of backyard landscape (back).  “The main lobby is the primary entry for interaction between offices -- the backyard landscape is the same concept.  “To present areas of social interaction is key. The building was intended to have a single user per floor so that the users could experience the continuous run of window from all angles of the building,” says Mark Odom, Mark Odom Studio.

“The idea behind WELL Design is an overview of the office occupants and how we occupy and use the space,” says Laura Britt, founding Principal Britt Design Group.  In designing the new office space, the team used technological integration of both AV and lighting systems allowing for maximum flexibility of the space.
