East Austin, Texas
The Chrome Royale Hotel is to be located on a waterfront site on the East Side of Austin. The forms and graphics of the hotel buildings were inspired by the culture of assemblage and appropriation that pervades the city. It’s a cobbled-together, yet carefully controlled composition of food-truck, shipping container, and pop-up shop forms.
It has fifteen distinct rooms, a variety of balconies, roof terraces, private nooks, fire pits, and social spaces.
