Westlake, Texas/130,000 SF
Daimler Chrysler selected BOKA Powell to design both the shell and interiors of their 130,000 square foot call center in Westlake,Texas. A part of Hillwood’s Circle T Development this tilt-wall building has an Austin Stone veneer, standing seam roofs and detailing to help soften the harshness of a typical tilt-wall office building. BOKA Powell worked closely with the City of Westlake to insure that the design responded to the city development code, creating a series of facade elements that works to break down the mass of the building.
The building incorporates a trellis-covered patio adjacent to the cafeteria to accommodate lunch breaks and other gatherings. This design feature makes for an inviting employee entrance, as well as protecting against the sun from the south side.
Masterplanned to accommodate an additional 100,000 sq. ft. expansion, the facility incorporates a two-level parking deck with a covered connection to the building.
