Livestrong Foundation Headquarters

Austin, TX

After ten years of leasing space in a corporate office building, the LIVESTRONG Foundation found its permanent home in the 1950s Gulf Coast Paper Co. Warehouse in East Austin, an underserved community in the process of revitalization. Lake|Flato’s design for the renovated facility provides office space, meeting rooms, dining facilities, an in-house gymnasium, open-air courtyard, and parking for the staff of 62. Clerestory windows bring light into office space, and freestanding offices “boxes” of wood reclaimed from the site lend a sense of natural warmth, while concrete floors allow for an environment that is both durable and versatile. The project achieved LEED Gold certification.

It was amazing to work with Lake|Flato to build a sustainable structure that incorporates the attitude, innovation, and passion that drive Livestrong. The open, collaborative space with tons of natural light provides an ideal environment for us to work and serve cancer constituents in the community and around the globe.
