Sixth and Blanco
Swiss architecture studio Herzog & de Meuron has unveiled designs for the Sixth and Blanco restaurant, shop and hotel development in Austin, which will incorporate existing stores and houses.
Located at the intersection of West Sixth Street and Blanco Street in Austin, the structure will be Herzog & de Meuron’s first project in the state of Texas.
Built from mass-timber, the development will occupy an entire city block. It will also incorporate existing shops and homes on the site that date back to 1920.
Among Herzog & de Meuron’s other US projects is 56 Leonard, the iconic 821-foot-tall, 57-story Jenga-like tower in New York City’s Tribeca neighborhood.
