East Austin, Texas
The Chrome Royale Hotel will sit next to the water in Austin’s East Side. The forms and graphics of its buildings are inspired by the culture of assemblage and appropriation that pervades Austin. Composed of food-truck, shipping container, and pop-up shop forms, it’s both cobbled-together and yet carefully controlled.
It will have fifteen distinct rooms and a variety of balconies, roof terraces, private nooks, fire pits, and social spaces.
