Lab Building at Pearl
66,500 SF | San Antonio, TX | 2012
This mixed-use building houses retail and office space. The unique site challenge was to create flexible layouts positioning the front door to any direction. Three facades provide canopies and colonnades creating covered retail shopping and outdoor dining. The fourth façade creates an intimate court used for outdoor events and al fresco dining. Upper floors offer views of historic buildings, courtyards, and urban densities. Standard Pearl elements included increased density, regional materials, and large overhangs.
