We love the hospitality industry and have been privileged to work on many high profile hotel projects over the years – from the Five-Star, Five Diamond The Grand Del Mar to La Jolla’s historic Grande Colonial. Fortunately, our newest project allows us to continue our work in an industry we love.

Manchester Financial Group’s $370 million Fairmont Austin is a 1,066-room, 37-story, 1.4 million-square-foot high-rise convention hotel in the heart of Texas’ capital. We have been tapped to handle all interior design for this exciting new project, slated for completion in June 2017.

Austin is a progressive, up-and-coming city poised for explosive growth, and we plan to infuse a “vibrant transitional design style” into the city’s newest landmark with vivid colors, theatrical-style lighting and striking contemporary art by local artists. Another core part of the design scheme is its park-like setting; we are working closely with the Austin-based landscape dwg. architects to bring elements of the outdoors inside.

WSD is tasked with providing interior design for all public spaces, corridors, guest rooms and meeting areas, including ballrooms, and we will also be consulting and reviewing all visual aspects of the hotel, including landscaping and exterior finishes. With 106,500 square feet of meeting space, a 19,000-square-foot outdoor deck and four levels of parking, this fantastic new high rise will have a sky bridge that spans the highway, making it the first to have direct access to the Austin Convention Center. The hotel will be the second tallest building in Austin, and the second largest hotel in Fairmont’s collection. It’s expected to be Austin’s largest hotel.

Over the years, we have worked on numerous projects with hotel developer “Papa” Doug Manchester of Manchester Financial Group – including The Grand Del Mar and the Manchester Grand Hyatt, both in San Diego.

Towering 595 feet high, this is the tallest project we have lent our expertise to, and with the dynamic appeal of Austin, it is most certain to be one of the most exciting. We look forward to updating you on our progress.
