Four Points Centre
Four Points Centre is a 333-acre, mixed-use development which includes research and development, office, retail, restaurant, residential and hotel components organized around a 181-acre nature habitat. This 440,000-square-foot project was the first speculative office development to achieve a LEED Gold S&C rating in Austin. Comprising two 100,000-square-foot, three-story office buildings and a shared parking garage, the project complements the beauty of the Hill Country site by creating an architectural vocabulary that melds natural materials and timeless forms with modern design and sophisticated sustainable strategies. The native limestone, metal and glass clad buildings were sensitively inserted into the undulating topography with minimum disturbance to natural features.
The LEED Gold rating was achieved with a range of sustainable methods including sophisticated mechanical systems, ultra low water consumption, reduced lighting density, preserved natural area, solar orientation and shading devices, and extensive use of latest generation low-e glass to achieve maximum day lighting.
