BOKA Powell is committed to creating sustainable, green design solutions. The main objectives of our sustainable design approach are to minimize resource depletion of energy, water and raw materials, and minimize environmental degradation caused by materials and systems throughout their life cycle, and beyond. We work to achieve these goals as a matter of course throughout all of our projects, striving where possible to specify materials and systems that have an environmental benefit. When sustainability is a stated goal of the client, our LEED® Accredited design teams bring the ability to achieve much higher standards – up to LEED® Platinum certification.
Urban Revision, a dynamic mixed-use redevelopment concept, is optimized to maintain a consistent density throughout the site and create an urban edge that will preserve the urban fabric within U.S. cities. Internally, the project responds to the site specific conditions on three levels. The base level is the plaza shaped by pedestrian traffic throughout the site and manifests the social conditions of the current use. Defining the plaza are the buildings that make use of exterior passive systems bases on solar orientation and internal prefabricated components to compose the residential units. On top of the buildings are the roof gardens that provide open green spaces for the residence to socialize and harvest. Architecture, and the environments they create, need to adapt to new uses as functional and social factors change with time to truly be sustainable. This requires developers, designers, engineers, and all other participants to strategize about the impact their response to current programs will have on the urban environment of the future.

Barton Place is a six-story multi-building condominium complex located just south of downtown Austin near Zilker Park and Barton Springs. The six condominium buildings rest on top of a 2-level of underground parking structure, containing 607 parking spaces for condominium residents and patrons of two nearby restaurants. Barton Place offers a unique lifestyle opportunity due to its park side location and the pedestrian connection across the site that links restaurant row on Barton Springs Road with the Town Lake Hike and Bike Trail. The many restaurants, bars, coffee shops and parks within a comfortable walking distance make this one of the most desirable residential sites in Austin. The architecture is a modern interpretation of the local vernacular that capitalizes on 360 degree views of downtown, Town Lake, and Zilker Park. The project is clustered around an elevated plaza built on top of the parking garage that is lushly landscaped with native plants, as well as a massive, 100 foot pecan tree at the heart of the project. In keeping with the environmentally conscious local culture, the project will seek a rating with the Austin green building program, and relocate a number of outstanding trees to the nearby park.
